IMI remind of a list of reliable media one can trust. The White List of the best online media includes the following editions: Suspilne, Hromadske, Liga, Ukrayinska Pravda, Ukrinform, Radio Svoboda (RFE/RL), Dzerkalo Tyzhdnya (Mirror of the Week) , 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 held by IMI, SimilarWeb and Gemius, were evaluated for the presence of manipulations, fake news, and black PR.
In the second stage of the study, the media that passed the first stage were analyzed according to the following criteria: standards of balance, credibility and separation of facts from comments, the presence of jeansa, sexism and hate speech, as well as transparency, in other words the availability of contacts, editorial policies, financial transparency.
According to the results of the analysis, the level of compliance with professional standards on the resources included in the White List averages about 96%. The main newswire on these sites did not contain any jeansa (although there were some texts with inappropriate markings), hate speech, sexism and fake news.
