About Us

Geo Fact Check is a dedicated fact-checking initiative, which is committed to fighting the spread of misinformation and disinformation online.

We help verify or debunk claims and statements made by public figures and state agencies. We also encourage input from our readers on [email protected] for any claims they might come across.

Our social media verification team monitors digital platforms and the conventional media, as well as our own, to pick material of public interest and determine its factual accuracy.

For the Geo Fact Check team facts, data and reporting trump opinions and analysis. We aim to impartially scrutinise materials without taking policy positions on the issues we fact-check.

But we are not humanoids. We are not perfect, and we can make mistakes. If our readers detect an error, we encourage them to contact us on [email protected]
