Today is "International Fact-Checking Day"

April 2, 2018 is the second annual "International Fact-Checking Day," to be precise.  From the IFCD website:

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL FACT-CHECKING DAY

International Fact-Checking Day is promoted by the International Fact-Checking Network in partnership with fact-checking organizations around the world. We believe that fact-checking shouldn't be something only professional fact-checkers do. An accurate information ecosystem requires everyone to do their part.

 

Fact-Checking Day is a rallying cry for more facts in politics, journalism, and everyday life. It is meant to be lighthearted, but practical.

 

On this website you will find tip sheets and a reading list for everyday media consumers, course material for high school and college students, an interactive quiz and more.

 

Make sure to follow @factchecknet and #FactCheckIt on Twitter to take part in the global conversation on April 2.

More information about IFCD can be found here too.
