As the line between social media rumors and verified stories in reputable media outlets blur, fact-checking remains an essential element in reading news reports, especially about other countries. Amid a barrage of news reports and articles with a heavy dose of disinformation or misinformation about what is happening in Turkey, a new website offers help to readers to verify the facts about the country. Fact-Checking Turkey scans Turkish and international media and official sources to give the readers a correct version of events or statements often misrepresented in local and foreign media or by authors. The website covers everything from things a not-so-gullible reader can find by a simple online search to complicated issues where no concrete information is available.
You can find whether or not President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is also the current chairman of the ruling party, as a journalist claimed, or check the facts on purported allegations that Turkey purchased oil from DAESH. Funded by independent think tank, Bosporus Center for Global Affairs, the website relies on editors going through news about Turkey's domestic and foreign politics, economy and social issues and use "publicly available tools such as official documents, photographs, statistics, etc." according to a statement on the website.
