We are writing you since we need your help to carry out research to enhance fact-checking and advance media literacy!
In the frame of the EMIF funded project “Leveraging argument technology for impartial factchecking”, we are working on eliciting standards for impartiality and build a user-friendly digital tool to help fact-checkers in the process of information verification.
We would need your help to investigate biases that might affect fact-checking.
