We interviewed residents in Columbia, Missouri, to see which claims they felt were true or false before we showed them the results of our fact-checking. Does the public feel that fact-checking websites are useful? Watch and see.

 

Take a closer look at the fact-checking website we built: https://www.rjionline.org/factchecker 

And explore our fact-checker files in GitHub

 

In our expert segment, we speak with Angie Holan, editor of PolitiFact, about her work and advice on how to start fact checking in your newsroom.
