American Press Institute

The American Press Institute conducts research, training, convenes thought leaders, and creates tools to help chart a path ahead for journalism in the 21st century.

Why We Invested

Factchecking of statements made by politicians and pundits is emerging as a much more common practice in political reporting.

The American Press Institute will use its extensive networks within the news media, along with its credibility as a research group, to deliver research that improves the practice of fact checking. The institute will also work with outlets to significantly increase the adoption of fact checking practices as well as contribute to public debates on the topic.
