At Newschecker, we aim to limit and crackdown on the spread of fake news in society. We bring out the truth by examining the statements and claims made by public figures, personalities, media, and users on social media. We want to inform and educate the public and the electorate of the truth and expose hidden agendas, propaganda and motivated misinformation campaigns.
Our mission is an unbiased one. We’re loyal to neither people nor parties but the truth alone. And while the fact-checking ecosystem continues to grow, there are still countless assertions that go unchecked. We exist to fill in the gaps.
We have begun working on and pioneering the concept of Fact-Checking on Demand As A Service – anybody can forward us a claim in any of the languages we support, and we will fact check it for them. We do this through messaging apps such as WhatsApp. This allows us to make fact-checking more accessible and helps us take our work to the ground where it actually matters.
We welcome our readers to send us claims to fact check. If you believe a story or statement deserves a fact check, or an error has been made with a published fact check, please send/contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or WhatsApp us at 9999499044.
