Unruly Partners With NewsGuard to Provide Advertisers With Robust Brand Safety Measures

NewsGuard’s human-vetted credibility ratings will enable advertisers leveraging Unruly’s platform to identify high-quality news inventory

Unruly, a leading video advertising platform, announced that it will protect its advertisers with tools provided by NewsGuard, a company that rates news sources for credibility and transparency, to enable brands to advertise on vetted news and information inventory.

NewsGuard works with advertisers, agencies, and ad tech companies to help brands avoid ad placements on sites spreading false narratives and instead direct their ads to trustworthy news and information publishers. Unruly will have access to NewsGuard’s detailed trust ratings for thousands of news and information sources, developed by a team of trained journalists who use nine basic, apolitical journalistic criteria, to evaluate the credibility and transparency practices of each publisher.

“Unruly is committed to providing a quality, brand-safe marketplace for advertisers. This agreement gives our partners additional confidence that their ads will support rigorous, accountable news outlets,” said Jessica La Rosa, VP of Partnerships & Data, Tremor International. “We believe NewsGuard’s careful, manual process for evaluating sources is one of the best-in-breed approaches to tackling misinformation.”

The new partnership will enhance Unruly’s commitment to providing brand safety for advertisers, while also helping support quality journalism, and comes at a time when misinformation poses a potentially high risk for brands.

Recent industry and regulatory action have brought this phenomenon into focus, with the World Federation of Advertiser’s Global Alliance for Responsible Media adding “misinformation” to the list of online harms it deems inappropriate for advertising support. Moreover, the European Commission has now updated its Code of Practice on Disinformation with new standards for how companies should take steps to ensure that their advertising does not support publishers of disinformation. NewsGuard enables advertisers to meet the new GARM and EU standards — and is the only source-rating company that complies with all advertising-related commitments of the new EU Code, including providing publishers with a right of reply to their rating.

“We are pleased to partner with a company that shares our commitment to brand safety — especially on this critical issue of misinformation,” said NewsGuard Co-CEO Steven Brill. “Unruly’s efforts are not only helping make the internet a safer place for advertisers — but also a safer place for democracy.”
