Jimmy Wales, founder of Wikipedia, is launch­ing his next ad-free ven­ture that aims to com­bat fake news with what he terms “ev­i­dence-based jour­nal­ism” – en­tirely trans­par­ent news writ­ten with the sources in full view. Com­mu­nity vol­un­teers will aid pro­fes­sional jour­nal­ists in factcheck­ing global news sto­ries and read­ers will then be asked to make up their own minds. All this is ex­pen­sive, so the site is seek­ing both one-off and reg­u­lar do­na­tions. It cur­rently in­cludes an ex­plana­tory video, rolling up­dates and a sim­ple, sin­gle pledge page. All be­ing well, it’ll launch in Septem­ber.
