How Do Liberals And Conservatives Use Fact-Checking?
Most fact-checkers aim to stay out of politics. But the way in which partisan news sites use fact-checking is a different story. A study from the Duke Reporter’s Lab says there is a partisan divide over how fact-checking is referenced in liberal and conservative news sites.
While liberal sites are more likely to cite fact-checks and praise fact-checking, conservative sites are more likely to question the legitimacy of fact-checkers, according to the report.
