Created by

If the item was created manually it displays the name of the user who has created it. If the item has been created via another channel, it will display the name of the channel instead, for example: Item created by tipline means that the item was created when a tipline user submit content via a Tipline bot.

The Claim

Claim Description

The claim description is never shown to the audience of the tipline. It must represent the statement being fact-checked. For example, if a video has been published claiming that the landing on the moon never happened and was staged:

✅ A good claim description would be: "The landing on the moon was staged, it never happened."

🚫 A poor claim description would be: "It is not true that the landing of the moon was staged".

Once the description of the claim is added, it becomes the title of the item and is displayed on the list view of any folder or filtered list.

Tags

Tags can be manually or automatically added to a claim in order to categorize them and make them easy to find in your workspace. Learn more about tags here.

Fact-Check

To be able to fill a fact-check, you must first add a claim description.

Fact-check Title

It is the title of the fact-check as you would like the audience to read it. Once the fact-check title is added, it becomes the title of the item and is displayed on the list view of any folder or filtered list.

Fact-check summary

A short summary putting in context the rating of your fact-check.

Published article URL

If your organization published an article to fact-check the claim, you can reference the article here.

Copying the fact-check to the Report

If you are using Check’s Tipline, copying the fact-check to the report will pass the content of all fields to the report:

  • The fact-check is copied to both the Title of the Report text and the Title of the Visual card.

  • The fact-check summary is copied to both the Content of the Report text and the Content of the Visual card.

  • The Published article URL from the analysis is appended below the Content of the Report text.

Once the analysis is copied, the report remains fully editable. Edit to the report are not passed to the claim and fact-check panel.

Overriding an existing report

  • If the content already exists in the report, you will be notified and given the option to override the existing content.

  • If the report is already published, you will be notified and given the option of pausing the report before copying the content from the analysis.

Importing fact-checks from your database

Using Fetch, you can import content from your CMS or database into Check. When doing so, the Title, Content, Published date of the article, and URL will be automatically populated with the relevant imported data.
