Grade composition
The overall rating is made up of the following individual ratings from independent third parties:
Ad Fontes Media16 +, 4 -
Ad Fontes Media, Inc. is a media watchdog organization based in Colorado that is best known for its Media Bias Chart, which ranks media sources based on political bias and reliability. We combine their ratings of individual articles and episodes to create a weighted average, with low-rated items increasingly weighted higher.
    Reliability (Weighted Average)
  • "High"
Media Bias/Fact Check17 +, 3 -
Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) is an American fact-checking website founded in 2015. It uses a 0-10 scale to rate sites on two areas: bias and factual accuracy. A source rated by MBFC with minimal bias gets 10 plus points. Maximum bias gets 10 minus points. The same principle applies to factual accuracy.
Wikipedia
Wikipedia's reliability was often criticized in the 2000s but has improved over time; in the late 2010s and early 2020s, it was universally praised. Any positive mention of a source in the extract of a Wikipedia page in terms of credibility and quality gets a plus point, and vice versa.
    English-speaking
  • "S."
Fact Checkers
We primarily use fact-checkers affiliated with the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). We have linked to the International Fact-Checking Network fact-checkers' code of principles in the headline. For each failed fact-checker there is one minus point.
  • There are no failed fact checks to date.
Journalism Awards
Journalism prizes are awards for excellent journalistic work in the period covered by the call for entries, which is usually one or two years. Sources receive one plus point for each journalistic award won that we track. We currently track up to three prestigious awards per country.
  • There are no journalism awards won to date.
Press Council Rulings
Press councils are national institutions of media self-regulation. Press councils have their own defined press code. Reprimands are issued in the event of a violation of the press code (e.g. for truthfulness, diligence, sensationalism, separation of advertising and editorial, personal rights). For each reprimand issued by a national press council, a source receives one minus point.
  • There have been no press council rulings against the source to date.
Studies
Most scientific publications, though not all, rely on some form of peer review or editorial review to qualify texts for publication. Sources mentioned in studies which rate media quality and/or reliability receive between 10 plus and 10 minus points.
  • There are no evaluations of studies available to date.

Johnny Manziel announces Heisman boycott in solidarity with Reggie Bush
Quick Glance: Johnny Manziel Supports Return of Heisman Trophy
  • Former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel is urging the NCAA to return the Heisman Trophy to former USC running back Reggie Bush.

  • In 2010, Bush relinquished his Heisman Trophy following an NCAA probe revealing improper benefits he and his family received during his USC playing days.

  • Despite multiple efforts to reclaim the trophy, Bush has been unsuccessful, and the NCAA's new NIL regulations have not impacted the reversal of previous penalties.

  • Johnny Manziel, a Heisman recipient himself, plans to boycott the ceremony until Reggie Bush regains his trophy, but significant changes appear necessary for Bush to regain NCAA approval.
