Fact-Check Insights puts the power of a global database of fact-checks at your fingertips.

Fact-Check Insights is a powerful and groundbreaking resource for researchers, journalists, technologists and others studying the fight against political falsehoods and online misinformation. Our comprehensive global database contains structured fact-checking data for tens of thousands of claims from politicians and social media posts that have been analyzed and rated by independent fact-checkers.

This rich, important dataset grows every day, providing key data about articles from fact-checkers around the world, including well-known organizations such as FactCheck.org, PesaCheck, Factly, Full Fact, Chequeado and Pagella Politica.

The Fact-Check Insights database is powered by ClaimReview — which has been called the world’s most successful structured journalism project — and its sibling MediaReview. Both tagging systems allow fact-checkers to enter standardized data about their fact-checks, such as the statement being fact-checked, the speaker, the date, and the rating.
