Wikitribune

Wikitribune is crowdfunded news website created by Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales in order to combat fake news online. The strategy for the website is to hire professional journalists through crowdfunding efforts to write news stories and work alongside volunteers who will fact check, proofread, and suggest verifiable sources for curated articles. Wales describes Wikitribune as “news by the people and for the people.”

Wikitribune is a for-profit website funded by donors and is not affiliated with Wikipedia or the Wikimedia Foundation. However, Wikitribune is similar to Wikipedia in that it does not have advertisements or a paywall with the goal of being available to all readers, who can flag or fix articles and submit those changes for review. This is an example of citizen journalism where the readers, or public citizens, play an active role in the process or gathering, analyzing and disseminating news and information. For journalists hired by the site, they will need to provide the source for any facts and full recording and transcripts of interviews.

Wikitribune reached its crowdfunding goal to hire ten full-time journalists as of May 30, 2017. The website plans base its platform off of WordPress and officially launch in the fall of 2017.
