How does TruStory plan to rate online claims?


#1

I am just curious how does claims get rated on TruStory. There can many claims which cannot be just rated as either True or False. Like some can be Mostly True, Mostly False etc. Or does the claims get a relative score on the degree of truthfulness based on positive or negative votes. Snopes.com is a fact checking site and they have a list of ratings to label their claims.

Good question…not at the moment. We need data before we can create a good rating system.

Our first goal is to focus on objective claims which are mostly true or mostly false. Once we have many many claims, we can layer on other rating systems on top.
