About Us

At Newschecker, we aim to limit and crack down 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.

Newschecker is devoted to the truth and works hard to maintain objectivity. Numerous claims go undetected despite the fact-checking ecosystem’s continued expansion. Newschecker seeks to close these gaps.

Our mission is an unbiased one. Newschecker is committed and loyal only to the facts and the truth and nothing else. 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 [email protected] or WhatsApp us at 9999499044.
