Check Your Facts

We all know that not everything you read on the internet is true. But how do you know what is true and what isn’t? How do you know if politicians and news organizations are getting their facts right? This is when you need a fact-checker.

On this episode of Science for the People, Bethany Brookshire interviews three experienced fact-checkers this week about what it is, how you do it and where science-spewing politicians make it all go pear-shaped.

    Unfortunately we don’t have the funds to pay for transcripts, or volunteers willing to do it for free. My apologies, it’s something we’d like to offer if we had the budget for it. :(
