Quod - Fact Checking Stories

What

Quod is a marketplace for fact checkers and storywriters to create accurate and objective stories.

Why

News outlets are subject to bias and clickbait articles due to their reliance on advertisers and need to hit financial targets. Journalists and investigative reporters can get tips about new stories and earn extra revenue by fact checking stories submitted by other writers. A Quod-certified story means the story has been independently verified to be truthful and accurate.

Why This Business Will Win

I've built marketplaces in the past and understand the online advertising ecosystem quite well. There is shift happening in journalism to more accurate reporting, less clickbait articles, and less reliance on advertisers. Quod is taking advantage of this trend.
