Faktisk: Norway’s Fact-Checking Cooperative

Faktisk: Norway’s Fact-Checking Cooperative is about the fact-checking initiative, Faktisk.no from Norway. This website was launched as a collaborative effort between media rivals Dagbladet, one of Norway’s largest newspapers, VG and NRK, to fight fake news. Together, the media organizations joined together to fact-check disinformation and misinformation. Written by Faktisk editor Kristoffer Egeberg, the case study highlights the process of collaboration between rivals, the extensive and successful work Faktask did, the societal change the fact-checking work enabled, and offers insight and advice for those looking to emulate Faktisk’s model.
