Fact-checking platform created to address misinformation in South Korea

Journalists and professionals from different areas have jointly created a fact-checking platform to systematically address misinformation in South Korea. The platform called ‘Fact-Check Net’ consists of 11 professionals and 33 civic checkers. The professional fact-checking group includes individuals from South Korea’s key news agencies, newspapers, and legal organisations. The civic fact-checkers are going to be specifically trained for the mission.
