Meet Federated Ferret

The Problem

This patent pending solution to fake news is founded on the principle that you can't stop it; only its impact can be stopped.   The delivery of news of any kind is subject to the biases of the authors, editor in chiefs, broadcasters and publishers of magazines, newspapers, radio, television, entertainment, gaming, virtual reality and all of others have known biases, conflicts of interests, and political leaning biases being some of the most well funded outlets as they've consolidated interests at work.    

Advertising is also a key element and a very persuasive force in the funding of both the creation and delivery of content of all types.  Power centers exist within broadcasting, print, digital, outdoor, gaming and others that link directly to consumer product goods and services through advertising.  

The Solution 

Federated Ferret, true to its' name, ferrets out the biases and points out the sources of materials that have biases.  The technology using a patent pending federated search system indexing millions of mapped source news data centers, sites and repositories and informs the consumer of the contents's biases.  Going further, as Ferrets do,  the system provides for analysis of written, spoken, media, digital and virtual content that provides the reader with further intelligence about any presented media source.  If an artifact, article, media, broadcast or data source is  negative,  positive,  neutral, truthful, authoritarian, promotional, forward looking, bullying, aggressive or any of myriad of tests applied to all presented content the Federated Ferret; simply lets you know.   

As to whether news is fake or not, the Federated Ferret provides all users to instant access to all leading fake news publishers, their sources and all of the whistle blowing sites and all of their affiliates to give you a real-time view of what the experts have identified as being fake news.      Again, going further, the system archives and displays timelines of fake news activity mapping against the outcomes in the REAL World. 

All in a days work, Ferret's have a great energy and spirit for life and an uncanny ability to get to the bottom of things.   Thank you for visiting our website.  We are grateful for you support.  Please contact us with suggestions, ideas, feedback or your questions.  Thank you kindly.
