FactCheck: Sign up to The Journal's monthly newsletter about misinformation trends

See how we’re fighting back with quality information every month – and what’s happening in the wider world of disinformation.

EVERY MONTH, THE JOURNALS fact-checking team send out a newsletter documenting what’s happening with false news in Ireland and further afield. 

Written by Stephen McDermott and Shane Raymond, with inputs from the rest of the team, the newsletter looks at what misinformation is being shared right now and points at trends in fact-checking.

Hopefully you’ll come away each month feeling a bit smarter but also thinking about what exactly can be done to fix this mess.
