Online misinformation has developed into a critical societal threat that can lead to disastrous societal consequences. Researchers at NYU Tandon and NYU Abu Dhabi interviewed professional fact-checkers from 19 countries to gather information about the fact-checking profession, fact-checking processes and methods, the use of computation tools for fact-checking, and challenges and barriers to fact-checking.
