FactSparrow Expands Its Roster of Content Partners with the Addition of Specialized Expert Organizations COVID-101, EconoFact and USAFacts
FactSparrow, the factual-content delivery service and community built for the misinformation era, is continuing to expand its content catalog with the output of leading academic, research and data organizations. The service, created by Repustar Inc., added three organizations-COVID-101, focused on health issues raised by the pandemic; EconoFact, focused on economic issues, and USAFacts, focused on the overall impact of government on society-to a roster that already includes general-news publishers such as The Associated Press (News - Alert) and The Nevada Independent.
FactSparrow allows anyone to learn more about claims they encounter, using simple AI-powered tools. These tools intelligently link to a rapidly growing catalogue of content and allow users to access reputable information while participating in a community journey to combat misinformation online.
"Against the backdrop of a growing tide of misinformation on the internet, a number of non-partisan, non-profit efforts have been organizing a counter movement to demystify for the general public complex topics and issues of our time with hard data, good sources, transparent methods and simple factual explanations," said Chandran Sankaran, Repustar's Founder and Chief Executive Officer. "We are thrilled to welcome USAFacts, EconoFact and COVID-101 to the FactSparrow service. All of them are extraordinary projects that inform public understanding and help underpin debate with facts."
