This site seems very credible. The about us description tells the reader that the site is nonpartisan and nonprofit, both of which make the information more reliable. The site was also developed by the University of Pennsylvania, which adds to its credibility. I agree with this evaluation.

Seems Credible

Allison's picture

This source seems very credible because 1) It is a .org which does not always mean news is real but it can be a good indicator 2) There is no click bait, over-encouragement to share on social media, or other tactics meant to increase income 3) I know for that factcheck.org was used quite a bit during the election, especially during/post presidential debates and was generally a very helpful resource in terms of extracting truth from the candidates' statements. Overall, I would say that this article and website rank 5 on the trustworthy scale. The website is also easy to use/navigate and well-built, which is a plus.

The first thing that makes it more trustworthy is that its a .org witch usually means its legit. All the facts seam realistic, there is nothing said that seams absurd. It keeps bringing up what trump said and then refuting it with reliable facts. The links it brings you too are also credible. When looking at their mission it says they are a non profit so they aren't trying to make money. In their about us page they say that they are simply trying to get factual information out to the public, witch biased of the article seams like its the legit purpose of the website.
