Major Classification Changes

As a site gets increased engagement, it will come to the attention of NewsGuard and MBFC, and they will rate it. In addition, they periodically reclassify sites whose journalistic practices change. Below we report all sites that accounted for more than 0.2% of all engagement during the Week ending Apr 14, 2024 and which were newly classified or reclassified since Week ending Apr 07, 2024.
