FIGHTING Fake News 

 
 
 

Take the right steps To Protect Your Journalists against attacks.

ABOUT Our Project

 

The dissemination of accurate information is the ethical responsibility of news outlets, whose reporting needs to be truthful, accurate and meaningful. In today’s evolving world and the ever-growing connectivity, the dissemination of information across the world is almost instantaneous.

 

As a result, problems occur when what is being said is not correct, creating a demand in the journalism field for individuals to check the credibility of published statements. The dilemma today facing the field of fact-checking is balancing a citizen’s right to Freedom of speech, with a standard to limit speech that violates civil rights and that is not considered to be censorship. 

 

We look to set a foundation to explain why Fact-Checkers around the world are being attacked and the importance of accurate dissemination of news across a nation.

  • What We Do

    We care about shedding light on the threats and attacks fact-checkers have faced when reporting on topics such as misinformation and politically sensitive topics. Our mission is to provide solutions that help protect journalists from hate speech, threats and attacks.

  • The Best Practices Handbook

    The Best Practices Handbook is a compilation of the information attained through interviewing fact-checkers from around the world.

  • Training

    The HCB provides a training course that has been inspired by the recommendations that fact-checkers have given.
