At The Voice Fact Checking we check public speeches by mayors, council members and representatives especially in the cantons of Cañas and Bagaces. We classify the statements or references officials make as true, debatable or false. We qualify the categories as follows:
We checked the information out with sources and official data and found the statement to be true.
The reference or the statement seems true, but is out of context or lacks support.
We checked the information out with sources and official data and found the statement to be false.
We dive deep into a topic that we consider relevant. We don’t focus on verifying a statement or qualifying it as false, true or debatable.
We can make mistakes and we are committed to correcting them. We publish them under this category, when necessary.
We want to improve the quality of debate inside councils and city halls and we want readers of The Voice of Guanacaste to have verifiable information that helps them make better decisions for the development of their communities.
