Worthless. It detects nothing.

Gives a person a good heads up. First bad item was a local news site was classified as click bait. Previously it was not. Wish it posted what has changed.

Crashes all the time. Only marks conservative sites. Seems like a fake fake detector.

Infowars and Breitbart are rated 5 out of 10? I think I'd like to see the assessment methodology used.

we don't rate pages so maybe you are talking about the wrong extension

I think this is a great add on but have some concerns. I saw it work on some specific pages but, never saw it in action as a scrolled through my actual timeline. Along with that, there are more specific websites that are known to be fake and should be included

This site literally listed several sites that are absolutely trustworthy as being fake. Disliking MSNBC doesn't make them fake news.

Really like this so far. It flags sites, and google results which makes it very useful. However I'd like to have some way of adding more sites manually, or including more sources. I think this could evolve into something really great
