The Rating

We believe news should compete for credibility, not clicks. That’s why Credder allows journalists and the public to review articles, measuring the credibility of every article, its author, and outlet.

Credder features two kinds of ratings. The Critic Rating represents the percentage of positive reviews from verified journalists. The User Rating represents the percentage of positive reviews from the public. On the homepage, we display an article’s User Rating by default, and then the Critic Rating when none are available.

Credder prefers to display article ratings, but when none is available, we use the author or outlet rating instead. We display No Rating Yet if there are no article, author, or outlet ratings available.

Credder has two rating icons:

gold-cheese
Gold Cheese is featured next to articles, authors, and outlets with a rating of 60% or higher.
moldy-cheese
Moldy Cheese is featured next to articles, authors, and outlets with a rating of 59% or less.

Reviewers on Credder also receive ratings, which represent the average of helpful and not helpful votes on all of their reviews. These ratings are visible next every review to help readers understand the quality of each reviewer.

We know our rating system isn’t perfect, so we’re always looking for ways to make it better. If you have any thoughts, please email support@credder.com. Thanks!
