Media Standards Trust & WSRI win Knight Foundation Award

We are very pleased to report that the Media Standards Trust and the Web Science Research Initiative have just won a Knight Foundation Award for their transparency initiative.

The awards – for $350,000 – will go towards the development of tools to enable journalists, and those producing journalism, to distinguish their work from other content on the web (e.g. commercial, government, personal etc.), so that the public can search for news more intelligently, and assess it better when they find it.

For more information about the project please contact Martin Moore, Director of the Media Standards Trust, at martin.moore@mediastandardstrust.org.
