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.
