The Independent launches 'In Fact'

The new initiative aims to combat the rising threat of fake news.

In Fact goes live in April 2017, and aims to expose fake news in the media, politics, and on the web.

Those wishing to follow InFact will be able to do so on both Facebook and Twitter.

The news of this launch comes after the Independent celebrated significant growth since going digital-only in March 2016.

Digital audiences are up 71% year on year 50 96.5M global unique browsers per month.

Daily unique users are up to 5.45M, an increase of 88% year on year.

Editor of the Independent, Christian Broughton, said: “Fake news can mean many things, from spin to outright lies and, in a certain world leader’s vocabulary, perfectly correct information that makes him look bad. Whichever way you define it, fake news is bad news. It propagates ignorance and allows voters to be conned and manipulated. With its huge social media reach and reputation for independent assessment of the facts, The Independent is in a unique position to confront the phenomenon head-on. We’re calling on our readers and social media followers to help us on this one and flag any abuses of the truth they see – we’ll investigate as many of them as we can. It’s the natural next step after a year when we proved our doubters wrong and took The Independent to a position of global reach and influence.”
