News Rating Service Readying Pilot Launch

Rob Hof

I just got a sample survey from NewsTrust that indicates the news rating service will launch a pilot site in January. The group, headed by Fabrice Florin, claims test results show that citizen reviewers can judge the quality of articles as well as journalists. When I wrote about it last April and May, I thought it was a commendable idea, and I still do. But I think it's going to take a lot of work and a lot of time to prove itself out, especially in these polarized times. So it goes with anything worthwhile.

Speaking about ratings...

Why don't we establish ratings for everything?

As an Internet user you, probably, have already tried to find ratings on some things which you consider to buy, use or get more information on. It may be services (hosting, design or movie rentals), public figures, consumer goods, articles or books, news, movies, beer, hotels, websites and much more.

You have, perhaps, seen thousands of fragmented websites, discussion forums, which force you to dig for the information even more.

With Ratingo you got one-stop shop, where you can find what people think (and why) about all you have been searching for before.
