A Brief History of Facts | History Today
The rise of ‘the fact’ during the 17th century came at the expense of the power of authority. Could the digital age reverse how we decide what is true and what is not?

Ahead of India’s general election, fact-checking initiatives are mushrooming online. — Splice
Until August, only two Indian fact-checking initiatives — Boom and FactChecker — had been certified by the International Fact Checking Network, which stresses non-partisanship, as well as transparency of sourcing, funding and methodology.

But ahead of India’s general election in May, others are getting in on the act. Four more have been certified in recent months, including TV Today Network Fact Check.

And the Times Group, the biggest Indian media conglomerate and publisher of the largest circulated English-language daily in the world, started its own project called Times Fact Check in August.

However, most initiatives, even signatories to ICFN’s code, only partly disclose their funding.

Kaur questions whether mainstream press fact-checking units are turning the microscope on their own media outlets — and, by extension, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

“India Today, for example, has a brilliant fact-checking team. But there is a clear dichotomy between what the fact-checking unit does and what India Today the television news channel does. I’m not sure it fact-checks stories from its own TV channel,” she says.

Цивилизация Пружин, 1/5 / Хабр
когда отец на прогулке упомянул, что любой грузовик весит столько же, сколько увозит сам, я это запомнил. Запомнил и, много позже, заинтересовался.
Отец был прав. Для грузовиков 60-х годов это правило выполняется с довольно удивительной точностью:
