Use PolitiFact For Non-partisan Fact-checking
The proliferation of news sources and the ease and speed of social media — combined with readers’ short attention spans and tendency to just read the headlines — make it easy for readers to fall for fake news.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, PolitiFact is a non-partisan fact-checking website that rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others who speak up in American politics. Each day, PolitiFact journalist researchers look for statements to fact-check – reading transcripts, speeches, news stories, press releases, and campaign brochures; watching TV; and, scanning social media.
Use this resource with its various rating systems to sort out fact from fiction for yourself.
