Today (April 2) is International Fact Checking Day. Check your favorite journalism sites and you will likely see excellent suggestions for snooping our fake news and doing a better job of fact checking. I found some advice from across the pond that may be helpful, especially for reporters trying to do investigative work. This set of tips comes from the European based Journalism Fund.
These tips are more broad and help you check and double check your facts on all types of reporting. Please take a look at Get It Right Every Time.
In our jobs we are busy, frequently overworked and underpaid. We need to remember that Fact Checking Day is EVERYDAY!
