FACT-CHECKING – Kristoffer Egeberg was asked to head the fact checking site Faktisk.no when the leading Norwegian publishers set up their ideal and independent organization in 2017. Since then, Faktisk.no has fought back most of the skepticism and critic, also from press colleagues. Nowadays the former Norwegian army officer and international awarded investigative reporter may be happy to see that practically all legacy media has joined his ranks. Faktisk.no is seen as an important contributor to an improved public debate and the debunking of incorrect and false news.
Noda19 will include fact-checking and the important work to increase trust to media in it’s workflow. Faktisk.no staff and Kristoffer will give competence courses at NODA and contribute to the conference programme.
