Hi! We are a friendly group of WikiTribuners who are interested in community fact-checking of news, both news published by us at WikiTribune, but also the writing of “fact-check” articles about stories out in the wider media.
Users can also talk about the subject by clicking on the TALK tab above or using the button below.
Please expand this project in anyway you see fit and create new sections.
