Fake news are able to mimic the style and the form of credible news. This is why it is very hard to detect them. Politician speech, videos, images and articles can integrate unsourced information.
We believe that we can identify fake news. With our web tools SERUM, you can now rate a website based on your personal knowledge. Six scores are available.
SERUM evaluates facts and not opinions. It is common that rumors spread and impact opinions on very important subjects. Even though the opinion given by an article or a website is different from yours, you should never judge it on its opinion but on the veracity of its facts.
When a journalist reports a speech, you should judge if yes or no the citation has been said, in the same context. Some citations could win a trophy for its stupidity but this is not what we evaluate.
Did Trump affirmed that the 'two states solution' is not the only one to solve the israelo-palestinian conflict?
Yes, he did.
Does the 'two states solution' is the only one to solve the israelo-palestinian conflict?
This is a personal opinion of Donald Trump and not of the journalist. In this context, the website is not judged for the reported speech.
Chroniclers have the habit to adopt strong opinions. Sometimes, it is based on facts that can be hardly verified and presented without sources. SERUM does not evaluate the opinion but always the facts which support the chronicler's opinion.
Do 500,000 jobs in Québec depends directly on the opening of the borders ?
Wihtout sources, it is hard to believe this statistic. It is probably wrong or fake.
Should Justin Trudeau build bridges with Donald Trump?
SERUM should not be the place to answer this personal question. Éric Duhaime believes that Trudeau should, but it is founded on a probably fake statistic.
Humoristic news or videos should not be evaluated. We expect to add a new category 'Humor' in the rate pad.
Is it a joke?
Yes, it is. This website is known for its satires.
