Hello everyone, and welcome to my website, I am sure a lot of you received fake images, fake news , so my job as a Librarian is to help you fight misinformation or fake news. In this post I listed three websites that are fact-checking and who will help you debunk or approve the piece of information that you hold in your hand:
- Politifact which is a fact-checking website that rates the accuracy of claims by elected officials and others on its Truth-O-Meter” https://www.politifact.com/
- Snopes is the largest and oldest fast checking site online https://www.snopes.com/
- NewsGuard’s https://www.newsguardtech.com/ journalists gives a note to more than 4,000 websites that provide more or less 95 percent of the news and information used and shared online in the U.S., U.K., France, Germany and Italy. They do have a “Coronavirus Misinformation Tracking Center” https://www.newsguardtech.com/coronavirus-misinformation-tracking-center/ that lists a lot of websites that they have recognized as publishing false information about the Corona virus.
Please stay tuned for more information…
