Media Partners

FIJ Media Partners are media outlets and organizations that make efforts to carry out or promote fair fact-checking based on the FIJ Guidelines with the aim of building a society that will not be misled by mis/disinformation.

FIJ provides daily questionable information to the domestic Media Partners for review and invites them to monthly meetings with the aim of achieving more effective fact-checking.

We have thirteen domestic media partners and four overseas partners.
