In this video, we demonstrate how to use a tool to find verified facts about EU elections. We can search for specific information, view fact checks from different outlets, and even see a global map of the spread of narratives. The tool provides valuable data, including timelines for claims and debunked information. Watch this video to learn how to gather verified data on EU elections and stay informed.

What we did?

We are searching disinformation narratives on EU elections, debunked or fact checked. What we do is we ran a comparative search on our Mindbugs Verified Facts Search, Google and Google Fact Check, to compare results and their quality.

On Mindbugs Verified Facts Search we can find, in seconds, tens of debunked narratives and fact-checks, presented with their original claims. In addition, the tools also offers visuals for the verified information: a map showing countries where claims were found (and debunked), sources for the original disinfo claims, and a timeline that shows the evolution of narratives in countries, in time. All the charts are updated based on my selection of statements.

On Google, we found news about EU elections and fact check initiatives or databases, information, but the results do not include pieces of disinformation narratives debunked and/or verified. So, we need to work more in order to get verified data or groups of narratives. Searching through Google takes a considerable more amount of time.

On Google Fact Check, we only found one result.
