Fact Check

VERA Files Fact Check tracks the false claims, flip-flops, misleading statements of public officials and figures, and debunks them with factual evidence. It also fights misinformation and disinformation spread on the internet. This project is supported by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). VERA Files is also part of Facebook’s third-party fact-checking program.

VERA Files is a signatory to the International Fact-Checking Network. If you believe VERA Files is in violation of the IFCN Code of Principles and wish to contact IFCN directly, you can visit the link https://ifcncodeofprinciples.poynter.org/complaints-policy.
