Fiskkit: The Red Pen of the Internet- Calling out BS in trending news-

Elevating online discussion to favor facts, logic and civility

The Problem

Our platform allows readers of online news stories to call out "true" , "false", "biased wording" and nine other features in real time. We want to stop the spread of Google-ably untrue content from spreading online and create a way to engage more meaningfully on content.

The Solution

Our current project is in classrooms teaching critical reading skills to students. All of the interactions on our platform are measurable so we can put all inputs into structured data to return insights on how readers engage with the content. We can see where students engage and how they tag material to return insights into comprehension and discussion topics. is live and free for any user today for any article they want to comment on. Cut and paste articles (not behind hard pay walls) into and have at it.
