& fact-checking /
Fact-checking is a set of practices and tools used to verify information and is a basic principle of journalism. There are many ways to check facts and anything can be verified (photos, videos, rumours spread on social media, etc.). It is absolutely imperative that a journalist verifies a piece of information before publishing it due to the explosion of fake news which is often created online and distributed on a massive scale on social media.
