Importance of Fact Checking in Journalism

In the age of information and technology, the communications are getting faster than ever before. So, how are your sources communicating with you? Do they get the facts right? Who is doing fact checking of your sources? How is it being done?


On the 8th  of August, Yvonne Chua, the co-founder of Vera Files fact checking initiative in the Philippines led the talk on the importance of fact checking, especially in journalism. Participants who attended the meetup are with different professional background and they were so eager to learn how Myanmar can adopt different fact checking models from around the world.
