Crafting peace and building a safer world

Trusted news initiative


The TNI is an industry collaboration of major news and global tech organisations working together to stop the spread of disinformation where it poses risk of real-world harm. It is the only forum in the world where global tech platforms and publishers are talking about disinformation in real time. The TNI has a shared early warning system of rapid alerts to combat the spread of disinformation about Covid-19 and during significant elections. In an era of ‘fake news’ and potentially life threatening disinformation, TNI partners help audiences get accurate and trusted information. TNI partners are: AFP, AP, BBC, CBC/Radio-Canada, Daily Maverick, EBU, Facebook, Financial Times, First Draft, Google/YouTube, The Mail & Guardian- South Africa, The Hindu, Instagram, LA Times, Microsoft, Reuters, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Twitter, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post.
