The Mozilla Foundation has its fingers in many pies. Its latest project is the Mozilla Information Trust Initiative, “a comprehensive effort to keep the Internet credible and healthy”. From the site:
“Mozilla is developing products, research, and communities to battle information pollution and so-called ‘fake news’ online. And we’re seeking partners and allies to help us do so.”
