CROSS CHECK

Collaborative journalism project tackling misinformation in the French election

We built an online news verification tool that used a WordPress website hooked into Slack and Meedan for a countrywide inter-news-agency collaboration backed by Google News Lab.

Bringing together 37 newsroom partners in France and the UK, it help report false, misleading and confusing claims that circulated online in the ten weeks leading up to the French Presidential election.

Users could submit questions for media partners to investigate.

Questions verified or debunked by skilled media professionals.

Collaborative, international project backed by Google News Lab.
