Organisation: Media Monitoring Africa (South Africa)

Everyone attempting to fight the battle against disinformation seems to be silo’d in their efforts. This has lead to multiple definitive lists of dodgy news sites. There is no clear indication of the criteria used to evaluate the lists or who added which items to the list. There is also currently no easy-to-use open source API to query these lists. We seek to solve this by creating an open-source community managed centralised and categorised list of disinformation sites and legitimate news sites, all accessible via an API or by download.

Technologies used for this project:

PHP, Laravel 5, (for API documentation generation)
