A collaboration between Google and news publishers in Europe
Ferret Fact Check
Project type: prototype
The Ferret Media Limited
In the wake of the UK decision to leave the EU and the possibility of another referendum on Scottish independence, there is an urgent need for a respected fact checking organisation in Scotland in light of the many falsehoods and distortions prevalent in the run-up to the vote on Britain’s future in Europe.
Ferret Fact Check will examine claims made by those in positions of power. The fact-checking will be intelligent and authoritative and show all the source material and workings while making clear where fact ends and spin begins, where there are shades of grey and what assumptions are being made.
