About the WOKE O METER Ratings

Verity One's WOKE O METER assigns labels like "WOKE," "AWAKE," and specific numerical values to each media outlet. The numerical scale ranges from -6 (farthest WOKE) to +6 (farthest AWAKE), with 0.0 representing the exact middle ground.

The WOKE O METER provides valuable insight into the nuanced biases of an outlet. For instance, if a media source oscillates between WOKE and AWAKE leanings, this tool can provide clarity.


1. Balanced Editorial Analysis

Our Balanced Editorial Analysis involves a multipartisan team of six to nine individuals from WOKE, AWAKE, and NEUTRAL viewpoints. They scrutinize articles, identify biases, and collectively assign a rating on the -6 to +6 scale. This weighted average is then utilized for the rating.

2. Anonymous Bias Evaluation

In this process, people across the WOKE-AWAKE spectrum review anonymized articles and headlines. They then provide a bias rating without being influenced by the outlet's reputation. The cumulative data is averaged and used for the rating.

3. Preliminary Independent Assessments

This method offers a quick, initial bias rating through individual analysis. It's often employed as a first step or when an outlet is transparent about its WOKE-AWAKE leaning.

4. Peer-Sourced Information

Sometimes we incorporate academic studies or other third-party analyses into our ratings.

5. User Feedback

We value user opinions, which act as indicators for further review, but they do not directly influence the ratings.

Confidence Levels

The confidence in each rating is categorized as Low, Medium, or High based on the number and types of methodologies applied, as well as the strength and consistency of the data.

How Verity One Ltd. Gauges Media Wokeness vs Awareness

Verity One Ltd. Media Wokeness Ratings™ are engineered using a multipartisan, scientific approach. We leverage our proprietary Wokeness vs Awareness Detection Technology to offer what we believe to be the most reliable evaluation of media bias. Our system reflects the collective viewpoints of individuals from various political backgrounds, rather than any single perspective or group.

Our Approach to Rating Wokeness vs Awareness

Verity One Ltd. assigns specific labels such as WOKE Left, WOKE Lean Left, AWAKE Center, WOKE Lean Right, or WOKE Right along with a numerical score on the Verity One Ltd. Media Wokeness Meter™.

The Verity One Ltd. Media Wokeness Meter™ adds an additional layer of clarity to our categorical labels. The numerical score ranges from -6 to +6, with 0.0 signifying a perfectly AWAKE Center, -6 being the most WOKE Left, and +6 being the most WOKE Right. This is particularly useful for media outlets that hover between two categories.

How We Do It: Methodology

✔ Multi-Angled Editorial Review

Our multipartisan panels consist of 6 to 9 members from various political orientations. These reviewers scour news articles, headlines, images, and other elements dating back six months using resources like the Wayback Machine. They identify instances of bias—WOKE or AWAKE—and calculate an average score which then is converted into our categorical rating.

✔ Unbiased Public Opinion Survey

In our Unbiased Public Opinion Survey, we expose participants to media headlines and articles without revealing the source. This helps to gauge the perception of Wokeness vs Awareness without the bias of brand recognition. We then average out the scores across all political orientations.

✔ Individual Reviews

These are basic-level analyses conducted by a single Verity One Ltd. reviewer, offering a preliminary rating of Wokeness or Awareness. This method is generally used before deploying more detailed methods, or when a source openly declares its bias.

✔ Third-Party Research

We occasionally incorporate academic studies, polls, or other transparent analyses into our rating process.

✔ Audience Insights

Your feedback is crucial, although it doesn't solely determine our ratings. Votes from the community act as indicators, potentially prompting a more in-depth evaluation if there's significant disagreement with our ratings.

Confidence in Our Ratings

Our confidence level is dependent on the number and type of methods applied and the consistency of the data collected. The higher the level of consistency and variety of methods, the higher our confidence level.
