Factchecking: How the Info You Can Trust Gets Verified

 

 A FEW WORDS ABOUT FACTCHECKING  . . . .

 

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.
