April 2nd is International Fact Checking Day – just a day after April Fools’ Day. In Kosovo, those who want to check facts have a lot on their plates. Krypometer, a joint project of BIRN Kosova and Internews Kosova, is the leading platform on fact-checking in Kosovo.
The purpose of the Krypometer is to reflect on the truthfulness of a public statements, to scan and inspect the statement of a political figure regarding issues of great local, central, or international importance. Video launched through social media, shows some of the most important pledges fact-checked by Krypometer, while public discussions, lectures with students and more fact-checking are just some of the activities that will be carried out to honor this day.
