Dear all ,
During the last months Wikitribune has been experimenting with its fact checking project, we have checked many viral claims by politicians and known people, many have joined as volunteers where they started new fact checking reports or edited and improved the drafts.
As we are close to the U.S. congress midterm elections, we decided to launch the “ Check One Claim” campaign, as the name suggests, we want everyone to chime in and contribute by just checking one of the viral claims, a core principle in our fact checking project is that we want to eliminate the selection bias by giving people the full power to be free to choose whom they want to fact check and the claim as well.
All what you need to do is :
1- Educate yourself about the fact checking project and how it works
2- Track one candidate from this list and pick only one claim and fact check it, you can do more if you wish!
So start your fact checking report, take the lead, and rest of of the community will join you to help!
