In the digital age, news consumers experience increasing difficulty in distinguishing genuine from false information and, as a result, their trust in the media is being severely undermined. This project aims to develop a web platform to capture, process and visualize the Swiss and global news landscape, in order to better understand its structure and the dynamics at play. For news consumers, transparent quality and credibility indicators will also help them to assess the reliability of news sources and information. Media outlets will therefore have the ability to stand out and regain their status as the guarantors of quality information. In addition, this platform will enable journalists to keep track of the reaction of the audiences online, allowing them to more effectively identify and address controversial or polarizing issues.
