    Any system of news checking must be completely independent from any outside influence of politics, finance or corporate interest. The focus of the news-checking should be news providers rather than journalists. It is perfectly correct that news providers be held responsible and accountable for the news they choose to publish, especially regarding important geopolitical events which impact heavily on everyones lives. There is no need to punish those news providers that fall short of in their dilligence of honest reporting. The fact checking agency would simply publish the results of their fact-checking for all to see. News providers would then have the option to publish the facts of the story if they choose to. News providers could give space in their publishing, perhaps on a weekly basis, to publish results of the weeks fact checking regarding important events. However, the publishing of a weekly, fact-checking report should not be obligatory for news providers but the report should be available in some form for all to access if they choose.

      Recently in India there are many fake news published by News houses & because of the news gets published, the local public gets violent & it costs Innocent peoples lives.
      The big news houses just run a small clip & say we are regret for the wrong information we get form the sources, but it cost human life so News houses should take a responsibility to make a full proof that the story is Correct & it should go to the national public.
