The Share the Facts widget provides a new way for readers to share fact-check articles and spread them virally across the Internet. The compact Share the Facts box summarizes the claim being checked and the fact-checkers’ conclusion in a mobile-friendly format. The widgets have a consistent look but can be customized with the fact-checkers’ logos and ratings, such as Pinocchios or the Truth-O-Meter.
The Reporters’ Lab is a center for journalism research in the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University. Their core projects focus on fact-checking, but we also do occasional research about trust in the news media and other topics. Their projects include:
- A guide to the world’s fact-checkers. They maintain a database of fact-checking sites and publish an annual census.
- The Duke Tech & Check Cooperative, a two-year research project to automate fact-checking, funded by Knight Foundation, Facebook and Craig Newmark.
- Analysis about trends and advances in fact-checking, including articles written by our students, staff and faculty.
