Though fact checking will not save us from fake news (see this thoughtful link), I find the following five resources useful in helping me decide how much credibility to give potential influencers who cite “facts.”

  1.  The Annenberg Public Policy Center
  2. US Politics
  3. Washington Post’s The Truth Behind the Rhetoric
  4. Poynter International Fact Checking
  5. Snopes: Urban Legends and Internet Rumors

Happy Debunking!
