Factchecking: How the Info You Can Trust Gets Verified




As technology has allowed for news to be remixed and the truth to be muddled, professional journalists have responded by creating fact checking processes and organizations.  Take a look at the Duke Reporter's Lab, a wonderful resource to insure that citizens, journalists and news publishers have access to truthful information.  

Factchecking organizations have been created around the globe, and Duke maintains a database of active factchecking organizations 

Fact checking follows a code of principles, which help to insure the accuracy, timeliness,  and overall truth of information.
