White List: 10 media that achieved the highest quality

29.09.2021, 19:14

The editions got to the White List of the online media with attested highest quality of journalism: Suspilne, Hromadske, Liga, Ukrayinska Pravda, Ukrinform, Radio Liberty, Dzerkalo Tyzhdnya, NV, Espresso and Babel.

These are the results of the next round of two-stage in-depth monitoring of online media, which the Institute of Mass Information conducts every six months. 

Three new media joined the list at once: NV, Espresso and Babel. 


At the first stage of the study, 50 popular Ukrainian online media, selected on the basis of previous monitoring data of IMI, SimilarWeb and Gemius, were evaluated for the presence of manipulations, fake news, black PR. 

Within the second stage of the study, the media that passed the first stage were analyzed by the following criteria: standards of balance, credibility and separation of facts from comments, the jeansa, sexism and hate speech, as well as transparency - the presence of contacts on the site, editorial policies, financial transparency.  

According to the results of the analysis, the level of compliance with professional standards on these resources which got to the White List averaged about 96%. The main newswire on these sites hadn’t any jeansa (although there were materials with improper labeling), hate speech, sexism and fake news. 

The idea of ​​IMI analysis was prompted by similar international initiatives UnitedforNews , TheJournalismTrustInitiative and the Internews Network team .

The research methodology is available at the link.

This study was made possible by the support of the American people, which was provided through the USAID Media Program in Ukraine project, which is implemented by the international organization Internews. The content is under the sole responsibility of the Institute of Mass Information and does not necessarily reflect the views of USAID, the US Government or Internews.
