MARY MATHIS

Let's Double Check That.

I help prevent retractions, lawsuits, and upkeep the trust between reporter and source.

Fact-Checking Process

My process has been honed in over time to be the most efficient, communicative, and foolproof fact-checking procedure. I'm easy to work with, and transparent with editors and writers. I have a keen sense of detail and intuitive reporting skills which allow me to make the smartest calls for each story.

My Special Sauce


I attended the FSJ M.I.T. Fact-checking conference in 2022

I also created the group Fact Check Us and organize webinars and forums so a community of fact-checkers can talk about organizational processes, rates, and bounce questions off each other.
