Ghawyy AND FACT CHECKING
Ghawyy has a fact-checking unit within its editorial department. The principal aim of this unit is to fact-check visual material and claims posted on social media. The fact checking producers in this unit report their findings on a section of the https://www.ghawyy.com website.
SOURCE OF INFORMATION
Anywhere and everywhere! From WhatsApp forwards to Prime-Time debates, we have many sources. We go through social media, messaging platforms and mainstream print and audio-visual media to get our stories. Some of the most prominent sources are WhatsApp forwards, profiles of trolls and politicians as well as trending hashtags. We are also active on Facebook and Twitter from where we get many of our stories.
METHODOLOGY FOR FACT-CHECKING
The content writers of Ghawyy work unbiasedly on the principles of integrity, independence, and freedom. We approach social media fact-checking work in the same manner. Ghawyy Fact Check monitors digital platforms for misinformation that is linked to news events and to subjects that are being discussed by the communities we serve. We actively seek out groups and accounts that represent opposing viewpoints and apply the same standards of assessment to all content. Our choice of material to fact check is broad, and is based on the following criteria:
Editorial value: is the topic timely and of public interest? Could the material potentially cause real-world harm, if it is inaccurate?
Reach: how far has the claim travelled? We examine the level of interactions on individual posts, as well as the visibility of the claim across different platforms.
Potential reach: is the information likely to be shared further? We examine how quickly the post is generating interaction and consider whether it may be repeated by others.
Balance of fact vs opinion: is it possible to isolate certain claims from the material?
After we have identified the content we aim to fact-check, we will first identify and summarize the key claims made in the content. We then aim to fully uncover the foundations of those claims, firstly by attempting to identify the origin of the information. In many cases, the original source of a given claim cannot be established, but in cases where a potential source is identified, Ghawyy Fact Check will ask that source for additional information and comment as required. We look for evidence relevant to the claim – both supportive or otherwise – and consult experts. Ghawyy Fact Check names its sources and gathers links to publicly viewable material wherever possible.
When writing checks, we provide links to the supporting evidence so that readers may see the material we reference in its full form and context.
