Introducing WikiTribune’s ‘Fact Check Wizard’
Campaigns are beginning for the U.S. 2020 presidential election, Brexit is dominating headlines across the globe, and social media is one of the key ways information is shared with the electorate.
WikiTribune launched with the stated goal to help ‘fix the news’, and with your support we’ve been able to create a community dedicated to the pursuit of factual and neutral coverage of the issues.
I know that people are often busy, and don’t have time to complete a fact-check by themselves, but may still see a viral tweet or Facebook post and ask ‘Is this really the truth?’. So we’ve made it easier than ever to alert other community members to what you believe needs verification.
Simply register your account, and click ‘Add New’ > ‘Fact Check’ to see our easy-to-use form to submit your link and let people know which claim they should check. The form will automatically format your submission, so all you need to do is click ‘save’ to get the fact-checking started!
