We experiment with new ways to increase public understanding of how news works. Rather than duplicate existing projects, we promote them and seek to expand their efforts. We collaborate with many partners.
We help newsrooms try new ways of being open about who they are, what they do and why — and to engage with their communities in ways that help people seek, understand, act on and even create news.
We’re grateful for our launch support from the Facebook Journalism Project, News Integrity Initiative, Democracy Fund, and Rita Allen Foundation. Each funder invests in a portfolio of projects worth looking at.
The News Co/Lab received funding from Craig Newmark Philanthropies to improve the reach and effectiveness of journalistic corrections. Discover how we plan to combat misinformation by bringing corrections into the 21st century.
