We're building a side project to expose ITKs and clickbait journos!
If you follow us on Twitter you'll know we're pretty hard on tabloid journalists and ITKs, and the reason for that is simple: we can't stand clickbait media. It's like a cancer on the internet where factual accuracy and news value is sacrificed to gain more site visitors and ad clicks. And the problem is that no one holds these hack tabloid ITK journalists accountable for making shit up for a living.
We have decided to start a little side project to "fix" this. Or at least to expose some of the worst offenders.
So how will it work? The platform will rank the worst sources of sports news (both journalists and publications), based on submitted reports from our team. These reports will include questions like "did the article include any sources?", and the reporter will be asked to rate the article in terms of reliability and gossip levels. Reporting an article will be a five-minute thing at the most, and will be part of just normal day-to-day browsing the sports news.
So we're looking for people to join this team. The only requirement is that you often read sports news from multiple sources, and that you are interested in exposing lack of integrity and ethics in journalism.
If you're interested in joining the team in the early stages to help out with forming the site and how it will work, give us a shout in here, or email us at [email protected]
