2010 - Now

Istinomer (Truth-o-Meter), launched in 2009, is fact-checking mechanism for monitoring of local and national politicians’ work from accountability and anti-corruption perspective. It was the first project of such type in the region.

Truth-O-Meter allows citizens to assess public officials’ accountability based on what they are saying and promising to their constituents, how much are they consistent in their work and how do they actually perform.

As a result of the ongoing research, analysis and accountability journalism, Truth-O-Meter database reached more than 3.000 accountability fact-checks, and 1.000 comprehensive analyses, investigative stories, blog posts and videos on most relevant accountability issues.

All the results of this monitoring are available online, but they also cooperate with the “offline” media.
