✊ The Action Alliance: Resources for the Resistance

(Matt Kiser) #1

The Action Alliance was/is a loosely federated group of organizations that, in the wake of the 2016 election, are sharing daily or weekly calls to action. We came together to connect, coordinate, and create greater impact with the common mission of helping you identify the most impactful actions to take each day.

Call for Collaborators: Many of these organizations are defunct or no longer actively maintained. This topic is a wiki post, which means anybody can edit it to help keep the list active and up-to-date. Feel free to add, delete, update URLs as necessary.

A vast trove of unreliable websites…pulled together by this methodology.

To create the index, we combined five major lists (see below), then eliminated the sites that were no longer active. We only used lists that were public and curated by established journalists or academics, contained original data (rather than information from other lists), stated their criteria for inclusion and defined how they graded different sites (see our methodology for more).

The index’s initial release relies on the five major lists’ determinations and definitions of “unreliable.” Our next release will include more sites and the criteria we used for inclusion.

But for now, here are the databases of unreliable news sites that we pulled from to create our index:
