The Scripps Media Trust Center is designed to help audiences of our news, sports and other media brands navigate the increasing complexity of understanding what’s real and what’s not. The emergence of artificial intelligence and the activities of bad actors can mean that legitimate media outlets and brands can be mimicked or misrepresented in ways that are not immediately obvious. When such an incident happens with a Scripps brand, we will use this site to explain what happened to our audiences. See below for a full list of Scripps’ local media and national networks brands.
The ability to trust news and information – and where it comes from – about events, our community and the world around us is essential to our democracy and our way of life. And with the proliferation of misinformation in the form of “deepfakes” (AI-manipulated videos), discerning the source of content has never been more critical to maintaining that trust. Scripps is committed to working with nonprofit organizations and leaders in technology to help shape an information ecosystem that prioritizes trust and transparency in information and where it comes from.
