The project's main goal is to improve quality and the ethics of the Slovak media. It will serve as a filter of doubtful, mistaken, or misleading news so that it will not appear and will not be repeated in other media. By improving quality of media, the project will improve control of the public institutions and will contribute to enhancing their transparency and effectiveness. Through encouraging critical thinking and real public debate based on facts, it will also help citizens to make "good" decisions based on "good" information and thus to contribute to further development of democracy in Slovakia.
