VoxCheck is a fact-checking project. We monitor and verify the statements of politicians and opinion leaders which they deliver to a wider audience, for example, in interviews to leading media or at political talk shows. The project goal is less lies by politicians and more critical thinking by voters.
How VoxCheck works
We base our work on the “click and check” methodology. Everything is transparent. Anyone can check our arguments and sources. Today the project database contains over 9,000 statements by politicians and over 800 refuted fakes. Every month we add about 100 refutations to the database. The quality of checks is ensured by the editorial board of the project. For publication, every text must be approved by two editorial board members. Detailed description of the methodology is here.
