FUD is an acronym for fear, uncertainty and doubt. There are plenty of media outlets happy to lend themselves as FUD factories and have ramped up their own production. The purpose of this tracker is to keep score on which sources and authors publish FUD that can be ignored and which stay within the bounds of objective journalism.

The tracker works by matching common FUD patterns in articles. It does not look for click-bait or negative news, only fearmongering trash reporting. Check out CleanTechnica's negative news coverage for positive/negative media tracking.

A snapshot of the all recent articles evaluated with labels can be found here.
