Listen to almost two hours of captivating discussion about political fact-checking! No, really. It’s only one hour and 50 minutes, including the audience Q&A, and I promise you it was a very good discussion – these people are top experts in the subject.
This is the audio recording of the panel discussion I hosted at the Wilson Center on 15th of April, 2015.
The panelists at ‘Who’s Afraid of the Fact-Checker’ were:
Angie Drobnic Holan – editor of PolitiFact. (Apart from the great work of PolitiFact, Angie also knows a lot about fact-checking as an emerging global movement. She works with PolitiFact founder Bill Adair, who keeps track of new fact-checking websites at Duke University.)
Glenn Kessler – the Fact Checker at the Washington Post. (Glenn publishes a fact check every day online and once a week in print. He is famous for giving Pinocchios to liars.)
Jane Elizabeth – Senior research project manager of the Fact-Checking Project at the American Press Institute. (Soon after this discussion, the API started publishing research papers on political fact-checking. Check them out.)
Photos of the panel were taken by the Wilson Center’s Global Europe Program’s invaluable Emily Buss.
