Plant Based News has won a 100 percent approval rating from NewsGuard – meaning it is considered to be a reliable news source.
“NewsGuard uses journalism to fight false news, misinformation, and disinformation,” says the organization.
“Our trained analysts, who are experienced journalists, research online news brands to help readers and viewers know which ones are trying to do legitimate journalism – and which are not.”
In order to earn this accreditation, a news site needs to meet specific criteria, which include responsible and accurate reporting, a clear corrections policy, and transparency when it comes to content creators.
“We are delighted to have earned this important accreditation,” said PBN Co-founder Robbie Lockie.
“We always work hard to try and create legitimate news that is fully sourced and cited, and it’s hugely rewarding that an independent organization has recognized this.
“Of course we aren’t infallible, and we try to be transparent when it comes to errors and corrections, which we mark on articles. If you have any concerns about anything you read on PBN, please contact us to let us know.”
