Get Fact Checks on Your Phone: Follow Lead Stories on WhatsApp WhatsApp, Doc?

If you love our fact checks you can now also get them delivered straight to your phone via our brand new WhatsApp channel. If you follow us you won't just be getting a link and a headline each time we publish one but also a short video summary (with captions so you can watch without sound). At the end of each day the channel will also post an episode of The Daily NOT, our fact checking roundup talkshow hosted by robot presenters Artie Ficial and Botty McBotface.

Before we were on WhatsApp you could of course also find us on TikTok, YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Threads.
