True or false: studying work practices of professional fact-checkers
NYU Tandon School of Engineering

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.  The study, "True or False: Studying the Work Practices of Professional Fact-Checkers," found that most of the fact-checkers felt they have a social responsibility of correcting harmful information to provide “a service to the public,” emphasizing that they want the outcome of their work to both educate and inform the public. Some fact-checkers mentioned that they hope to contribute to an information ecosystem providing a “balanced battlefield” for the discussion of an issue, particularly during elections.

It is clear from watching the full clip, Dr. Welensky was referring to the percentage of fully vaccinated people who died from COVID-19.
