Media Bias/Fact Check19 +, 1 -
Media Bias/Fact Check (MBFC) is an American fact-checking website founded in 2015. It uses a 0-10 scale to rate sites on two areas: bias and factual accuracy. A source rated by MBFC with minimal bias gets 10 plus points. Maximum bias gets 10 minus points. The same principle applies to factual accuracy.
Journalism Awards2 +
Journalism prizes are awards for excellent journalistic work in the period covered by the call for entries, which is usually one or two years. Sources receive one plus point for each journalistic award won that we track. We currently track up to three prestigious awards per country.
Wikipedia
Wikipedia's reliability was often criticized in the 2000s but has improved over time; in the late 2010s and early 2020s, it was universally praised. Any positive mention of a source in the extract of a Wikipedia page in terms of credibility and quality gets a plus point, and vice versa.
  • Wikipedia page not found
Fact Checkers
We primarily use fact-checkers affiliated with the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN). We have linked to the International Fact-Checking Network fact-checkers' code of principles in the headline. For each failed fact-checker there is one minus point.
  • There are no failed fact checks to date.
Press Council Rulings
Press councils are national institutions of media self-regulation. Press councils have their own defined press code. Reprimands are issued in the event of a violation of the press code (e.g. for truthfulness, diligence, sensationalism, separation of advertising and editorial, personal rights). For each reprimand issued by a national press council, a source receives one minus point.
  • There have been no press council rulings against the source to date.
Studies
Most scientific publications, though not all, rely on some form of peer review or editorial review to qualify texts for publication. Sources mentioned in studies which rate media quality and/or reliability receive between 10 plus and 10 minus points.
  • There are no evaluations of studies available to date.
Ad Fontes Media
Ad Fontes Media, Inc. is a media watchdog organization based in Colorado that is best known for its Media Bias Chart, which ranks media sources based on political bias and reliability.

Bangladesh's top court scales back controversial job quota system after deadly protests

Bangladesh's top court scales back controversial job quota system ...
Quick Glance: Bangladesh Dramatically Reduces Quota System
  • The Supreme Court of Bangladesh has decided to drastically reduce the number of government jobs reserved for war veterans and their descendants, following violent student protests that resulted in over 100 deaths.

  • The court ruling reduces quotas for various groups and abolishes quotas for women and individuals from specific districts. Overall, the ruling shrinks the number of reserved jobs from 56 to 7 percent, opening up more civil service jobs to university students.

  • Protests erupted after the quota system was abolished in 2018 and reinstated this year. The escalation of violence led to the government imposing a curfew and deploying the military to quell the protests.

  • The quota system was introduced by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding leader of Bangladesh, and later expanded. Students demanded that government positions should be mainly filled based on merit, leading to the court's decision to drastically reduce the quota system.
