About us

Mission

The mission of Factcheck.bg is to counter the increasing pollution of Bulgaria’s media environment by disinformation and misinformation. Democratic societies need information with integrity for their citizens to make informed decisions. By checking facts according to the highest standards of professional journalism on topics of the greatest social impact, Factcheck.bg aims to help Bulgarian citizens make their own informed choices on pressing issues such as the elections of their political leaders, public health during a global pandemic and upholding Bulgaria's human rights obligations.

Factcheck.bg supports the efforts of Bulgarian journalists to provide media consumers with quality information by checking claims made in social media, traditional media, public statements by officials and elsewhere. By providing verified reliable information on topics which are frequent targets of disinformation campaigns, Factcheck.bg also helps inform more broadly Bulgarian citizens interested in news and public affairs and those seeking answers to other questions of social significance.
