Contributed Claim Reviews

All Reviews on Repustar are contributed by people like you, in response to online claims that have been challenged by others. Contributing reviewers are expected to follow rules that seek to produce clear outcomes based on data and documents.
1
User-directed: Each Review is the result of one or more “flags” of specific claims in videos, news articles and other documents. These are generated by registered users of Repustar’s website or mobile apps.
2
Discoverable information: Reviews prioritize claims that can be addressed with generally available authoritative documentation. Valid questions requiring further reporting or access to non-public documents or conversations are outside the scope of Reviewers.
3
Focus on the what, not the who or the why: Reviewers are asked to examine claims carefully and focus on specific events, findings and data related to the topic in question, and look past rhetoric and opinions. They are expected to avoid endorsement of any person, political party or commercial interest.
4
All work is shown: Each Review presents links to documents, databases and other records that support the reviewer’s findings for all to examine.
5
All work is open to continuing user input: Each Review is evaluated by other reviewers before publication. Users may share any further documentation that adds important information about any published Review.
We are in the early stages of building the Repustar Review Network. If you’re interested in joining the pilot team of Review contributors, please get in touch
