Fact-checking is one of the main and priority functions of journalistic activity. It is also important for those who are actively following the news and developments around the world.
Internet access in particular has created an environment where misinformation can be easily spread. The experience of the Public Journalism Club shows that misinformation is becoming more and more a serious problem for society. On the other hand, journalists can receive a huge amount of information, which requires a mandatory check.
Alexander Martirosyan and Harutyun Tsatryan spoke about the need to check the facts, the open databases available for searching for information, many tools, and tricks.
The event was organized by the Public Journalism Club with the support of Open Society Foundations - Armenia.
