Definition: Fact checking

A fact checker does not make editorial changes, but simply verifies the accuracy of content as specified by the publisher. One client may request that the fact checker verify all statements, while another client may request the verification of addresses and trademarks only. The publisher specifies the degree of accuracy required.

Select a fact checker.
