Fact-Blockers & Censorship

Beware of this site. It has been proven in court that they do their fact checking based on their opinion, not based on research of any type. You can see how their opinion always aligns with the governments agenda. Meanwhile any Peer Reviewed study or any proffessional (even with a Nobel Prize on the subject in question) will be "Fact-checked" and even censored if it slightly goes against the gov. agenda.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (2 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This site can be an invaluable resource to help young reporters hone their craft, but other readers may need some patience in exploring its articles. Offering insight into recent coverage, career highlights, best practice tips, and other information, the site serves as a guide to help strengthen writers' journalistic skills. Kids may not get quite the same benefits from its content, although budding journalists are likely to find plenty items that are of interest. But younger users will get an interesting look at current events that are happening in the world around them, and how they're being investigated and shared by mass media outlets. The site material may be meant for adults, likely ones who work within the news industry, but it can certainly spark some interesting conversations among younger users, and it may inspire them to consider the importance of being precise and honest in their day-to-day life.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
