Metador is a powerful publishing system for fact checkers. It provides everything you need to set up and run a fact-checking service, including a modern responsive website and web-snapshot service to save evidence.
Our team has supported fact checking organisations for more than five years. Metador brings together our skills, experience and vision for building better, easier and more organised fact-checking initiatives.
Status of the product
The first version of Metador was released in January 2021 and new features and improvements will be released throughout the year.
Publishing content is easy. Fact checking is hard.
Whilst the world is awash with platforms and services that make it easy to publish information or disinformation, there are few organised tools to help fact-checkers collect, organise and publish their work.
The tools that do exist often perform a specific technical function and rarely work together, meaning fact-checkers must find, learn and use a large number of different services.
Citizens rarely visit fact-checking websites, so we need a better way to distribute verified and accurate information.
It is often said that a lie will travel half-way around the world, whilst the trust is still putting its boots on. Well, Metador aims to fix this by providing the support the truth needs to catch up!
