Our Research Process
We systematically go through transcripts and videos looking for statements based on facts. Once we find a statement that we suspect may be inaccurate or misleading, we will engage – or attempt to engage – with the person or organization that is being fact-checked. The burden is on the person or organization making the claim to provide the evidence to support it.
If the supporting material shows that statement is accurate, we will drop it and move on to something else. Our mission is to reduce the level of deception and confusion in the mainstream news, so we focus on claims that are false or misleading.
If the supporting material does not support the claim or if no evidence is provided, then we will conduct research of our own.
We are an independent, non-political based, non-bias news reporter & fact checker that aims to reduce the level of deception and confusion caused by other fact checking sites and the mainstream news. We monitor the factual accuracy of what is said by major news sources and fact checking websites in the form of TV ads, interviews and news releases. Our goal is to apply the best practices of both journalism and scholarship, and to increase public knowledge and understanding.
