The International Center for Journalists is proud to be on the front lines of a global movement to expose phony “news.” We have supported trailblazing fact-checking organizations in Africa and Latin America. Our friends at Chequeado have had real impact in Argentina and beyond. They have launched live “truth-squadding” of presidential debates and speeches, built new tools and hosted a global gathering of fact-checking organizations. PesaCheck in Kenya works with news organizations to check the veracity of statements by public officials on how taxpayers’ money is spent. And AfricaCheck has exposed false statements on topics ranging from elections in South Africa to Ebola cures in Nigeria.
At this crucial time, please support ICFJ in our efforts to promote accurate, transparent and reliable news.
