We rely on multiple sources to write our fact checks and bust fake news. They range from web versions of newspaper articles, Youtube links of news shows, tweets, Facebook pages to government documents on the web. Every source we refer to is hyperlinked or attributed in the story. In some cases, we also refer to them at the bottom of the story. Since tweets, Facebook posts and Youtube links are embedded in the story, there is clarity in the minds of the readers on the references we have used to write the story.
We also speak to police chiefs, government officials, company spokespersons and politicians wherever the fact check process demands it. In case of not being able to reach them, we usually mention it upfront in the story.
In the Methodology section of About Us, more details have been provided in point no. 2, 3 & 4.
