NewsTrust Seeks Citizen Reviewers to Help Rate the News; Could Become An Online "Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval" Process for Journos, Media Groups

NewsTrust is the brainchild of Fabrice Florin, a San Francisco-based media and technology guru who is putting together a web site designed to involve creators and consumers of news in rating the quality of the product.

I must admit I was initially skeptical but have since become convinced NewsTrust has the potential to become the online media equivalent of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. That's why I accepted Fabrice's recent invitation to join NewsTrust as an advisor and am encouraging others to become involved as well.

That encouragement extends to readers of Tapscott's Copy Desk. Check out NewsTrust here and then let me know what you think in the comments section.
