Ferret Fact Check

United Kingdom Project type: prototype The Ferret Media Limited


In the wake of the UK decision to leave the EU and the possibility of another referendum on Scottish independence, there is an urgent need for a respected fact checking organisation in Scotland in light of the many falsehoods and distortions prevalent in the run-up to the vote on Britain’s future in Europe.

The solution

Ferret Fact Check will examine claims made by those in positions of power. The fact-checking will be intelligent and authoritative and show all the source material and workings while making clear where fact ends and spin begins, where there are shades of grey and what assumptions are being made.
