Fact-checking Journalism

The State of PolitiFact in 2019

PolitiFact started as a politics news website in 2007, but these days, it feels more like a mission.¬†Over the years, we’ve evolved and grown to encompass many ways of promoting information integrity. I wrote a State of PolitiFact report for the site covering our core competencies, which include:

  • Political factchecking;
  • Withstanding attacks on the media;
  • Fighting disinformation;
  • Promoting media literacy; and,
  • Working with researchers.
