Not Censored Yet’s Guide to Fact-Checking

February 17, 2021

One of the first things we’re going to have to talk about is the difference between a ‘fact’ and an ‘opinion’

Key Differences Between Fact and Opinion

A fact is just ...

The difference between fact and opinion on the following grounds:

  1. The fact is described as the statement that can be verified or proved to be true. Opinion is an expression of judgment or belief about something.
  2. Fact relies on observation or research while opinion is based on assumption.
  3. The fact is an objective reality whereas opinion is a subjective statement.
  4. Facts can be verified with the help of evidence or statistics. On the contrary, opinion is not supported by any evidence.
  5. Facts explain what actually happened. Unlike an opinion, that represents a perception about something.
  6. One important feature of the fact is that it is universal and does not differ from person to person. As against this, every human being has a different opinion on a particular subject and so, it varies from one person to another.
  7. Facts are shown with unbiased words, however, opinion is expressed with biased words.
  8. Facts can change anybody’s opinion, but vice versa is not possible.
  9. Facts are real information and so it cannot be challenged or debated, but if we talk about opinions, they can be debated.

Not Censored Yet will make an effort to avoid 'fact-checking' opinions since opinions are debatable and often "needs more context"

Not Censored Yet's Five Steps for Accurate Fact Checking

  • Step 1 - Context is Everything

    Not Censored Yet won't base decisions on a five second clip taken out of context.

  • Step 2 - Determine if the Claim is a 'Fact'

    As noted above, we'll make an effort not to fact-check opinions because, to quote Ben Shapiro, "Facts don't care about your feelings".

  • Step 3 - Research What other Fact Checkers have said

    We may not necessarily be the first to the party, so it's best to research done by other organizations to determine if a claim has been successfully fact-checked by another organization.
    If it turns out that a "fact-checker" fails to correctly do their job, we'll be sure to screenshot and post a correct fact check while painting their avatar as a clown.

  • Step 4 - We'll do our homework

    Sometimes Google isn't good enough, and they track your every search, so we'll deep dive into various sources if necessary in order to provide the most accurate information.

  • Step 5 - There's only one standard

    The hypocrisy currently on display by the mainstream media is one of the main reasons why so many people are one edge. We've had fact checkers, politicians (including President Biden), and news organizations spend weeks spreading misinformation about how Officer Sicknick sadly passed away; leveraging his death for political points. Unfortunately, a simple fact-check would've proved their claims wrong but the MSM refused to be honest, leading to half the country believing an officer was beaten to death during the Jan 6th 'insurrection' when he actually died the next day from a stroke.

What our Fact checks will look like:

Claim: "blah blah blah"

True or False

Supporting documentation and explanation of the rating. We may also photoshop a clown's face-paint on the speaker's face, if we feel it necessary

Like the Constitution, this is a living, breathing document that can (and will) be amended as needed.
