Our focus at the start of this endeavour is to serve the community and voluntary sector in Northern Ireland, particularly in regards to encouraging civic activism. Thus, our topics of interest are those that affect them particularly, like crime, the economy, Europe, and the outworkings of the peace process.
We’ll fact‐check claims made by politicians and journalists, as well as popular myths (where we can substantiate them).
We are not yet able to fact‐check live events, major policy announcements (like a Government Budget), or election campaigns.
But our Media Monitors and Writers/Researchers are always working on our priority topics, so that we’re prepared for some of these rapid statements.
