An app that “proofreads” datasets, a tool that evaluates how much readers care about a story and an automated fact-checker are among a list of projects that have received early-stage funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

The recipients come from various media and nonprofit institutions including NPR, the New York-based digital media outlet Vocativ and multiple universities.
