Who Are the Fact Checkers?

Fact checking can be straightforward review of statements made by public officials or celebrities, but most often is a research question constructed with a negative answer. A problem with fact-checking is if the focus is biased in frequency, targeting particular individuals, organizations, companies, or political parties more frequently.
