This post is published on the websites of the International Fact-Checking Network (in English, Portuguese and Spanish), Maldita.es (in Spanish) and Full Fact (in English). Partnerships with internet platforms are vital for fact checkers that want to connect with bigger audiences and tackle misinformation on the same scale as it is being produced. Based on our workshop discussions at Global Fact, fact checkers would benefit from having private discussions about the design of new programmes. Fact checkers need to take time to have these conversations collectively, so that we can have better relationships with internet companies and others in the future. Fact checkers hold up standards of integrity and truth in societies, at a time when we cannot take this for granted in any country around the world.
