Hi, what are you looking for?

Our Editorial Process

DailyAgent Check is owned by DailyAgent and it operates under its Credible Information for Peace and Development (CIPD) project. It operates under the umbrella of DailyAgent as a company but is editorially independent, having its separate editor, staff, website, newsletter and social media platforms.

The Editor leads the day-to-day editorial decisions and makes final approval of all its content but does monthly reports to the Managing Editor and Chief Operating Officer of DailyAgent. He/she coordinates and supervises fact-checkers and all editorial content with the assistance of a Programme Officer. All content produced goes through a first round of screening by the Programme Officer for compliance check with fact-checking principles before being passed on to the Editor for review and approval for publication.

After a subject matter or a claim has been established as worthy of fact-checking based on our established methodology, the following step-by-step processes are undertaken to conduct the fact-checking:

  • Contact claimants to get more details on the claim or subject matter if necessary.
  • mapping and selecting available credible sources for verification.
  • contacting experts to get a professional touch (if necessary).
  • writing, producing and publishing the reports
