NewsGuard: The political elite's tool for censorship

NewsGuard—one of the largest and most influential “fact-checkers” employed by Big Tech—is targeting PragerU. After labeling PragerU as misinformation, encouraging tech platforms to cancel us, damaging our reputation, and costing us hundreds of thousands—if not millions—of dollars, NewsGuard refuses to leave us alone.

Who Is Behind NewsGuard?

NewsGuard is partnered with Big Tech companies (like Microsoft), Big Pharma (like the PR firm for Pfizer—the maker of the COVID vaccine), government agencies (like the Department of Defense), and even national teachers unions (like the American Federation of Teachers) “to combat disinformation, especially around COVID-19 and elections” according to the World Economic Forum. They want to control the narrative on any and every topic—from climate change, COVID-19 treatments and vaccines to elections, Planned Parenthood, and the WEF (to name just a few!).

How NewsGuard Rates PragerU

NewsGuard censors media companies that refuse to comply with their approved narrative. Meanwhile, legacy media outlets like the New York Times and CNN get near-perfect “credibility” ratings. JW Player, the company that used to host PragerU’s videos on our own website, refuses to work with us. When we asked why, they said we had been blacklisted by NewsGuard and claimed our content was “misleading.” Suddenly, we had to devote considerable time and money to find a new video host.
