ThePrint and SM Hoax Slayer announce lie-busting partnership

“The less you know, the more you believe,” Bono said famously.

And journalism is the business of ensuring you know more and question more. The original, fact-checking mission of journalism has got a new lease of life in this era of social media untruths.

ThePrint is proud to announce its partnership with the overworked and bull’s-eye lie-buster S M Hoax Slayer, a two-year old initiative. This also helps take forward ThePrint’s mantra of bringing traditional values of gate-keeping and rigour of classical print journalism to the online space.

We must challenge the rapidly exploding, attention-grabbing fake news industry, make our audiences aware–and also have some clean fun doing so.
