MediaWise International Fact-Checking Day 2023
As International Fact-Checking Day kicks off at MediaWise, we’re confronting another year plagued with 😱 misinformation. Elections are taking place around the world — the U.S. presidential race is already picking up — and we continue to grapple with climate change, civil rights, authoritarianism and other topics driven by falsehoods. A recent Poynter and MediaWise study 👀 showed global citizens are concerned about misinformation — but may lack the skills to spot it themselves.
MediaWise invites you to join fact-checkers around the world and 💪 fight back. These digital media literacy resources turn you into your own fact-checker — on TikTok, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook — anywhere misinformation lives. We celebrate facts every day. Now you can too.
