The Age of Disinformation: Verificado and the 2018 Mexican Election

Verificado and the 2018 Mexican Election

Looking to international best practices, Magazines Canada commissioned the case study Verificado and the 2018 Mexican Election on the collaborative fact-checking initiative that saw 90 newsrooms come together to fight viral fake news in the run up to Mexico’s 2018 elections. Verificado 2018 combatted disinformation with accurate, fact-checked, high-quality journalism. Written by Tom Trewinnard, the project lead for Verificado 2018, the case study provides lessons and insight from this project that could apply to or be used by magazine media publishers.
