Description
FactStream helps you find the truth in American politics by bringing together the work of the three largest U.S. fact-checking organizations – the Washington Post, PolitiFact and FactCheck.org. During major events such as speeches and debates, you can follow along as our partners fact-check in real time. Key Features: See a daily stream of the latest fact-checks as they’re published. Receive notifications of the latest fact-checks on your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Choose to get notifications of just the “worst” ratings such as “4 Pinocchios” or “Pants on Fire.” Search the latest fact-checks by name, subject or keyword. Follow live fact-checking during major political events such as political debates and major speeches. FactStream was developed as part of the Tech & Check Cooperative, a project of the Duke University Reporters’ Lab, which uses automation to help fact-checkers do their work and broaden the audience for this important journalism.

Easy 5 stars
by frankkenstin on 2019/04/06 05:32
This app congregates all of the fact checking institutions into one place. It is not partisan and keeps all sides in check. Very thorough, easy to navigate.
Factstream does not cover full spectrum of political ideology
by verymoderate on 2019/03/29 17:14
FactStream appears to have significant bias on who they report. Most off their fact checks are negative responses to moderate conservative ideals. Just another media outlet for liberal agendas. I support the rights of all people’s including those wishing to become citizens of the USA, the LGBT community and the protection of the unborn. FactStream does not give fair coverage across the political/ideology spectrum.
Only the truth, no party favorites
by hartmancf on 2019/03/07 21:33
This is only for those that want the truth, if you don’t want the truth no matter which party you belong to don’t join.
Finally, a quick way to check “alternative “ facts.
by Marlowe with an E on 2019/02/26 19:34
We are bombarded by “questionable” statements all the time and this app checks them automatically and gives you the REAL story. A must have for the easily swayed.
All in One Place
by ISKIGR8 on 2019/02/22 00:03
This app is great, informative and fun reading!
You can’t get more info
by Optimism227 on 2019/02/14 19:24
When I tap on a specific item from the homepage I am taken to another, entirely unrelated article. That makes no sense!
Tames the chaos
by CTMLAW on 2019/02/10 15:35
Too much information can be as bad as none, as the needles of truth are hidden in haystacks of misinformation. This app nicely help separate fact from fiction, calling on reputable analytical sources which cite references.
Nice try, but failed during the SOTU
by Neptue on 2019/02/06 17:17
This app looked promising. However, despite offering live fact checking during the 2019 State of the Union speech, the app streamed two checks in the first few minutes and nothing more. Maybe this app was too new, and not adequately debugged in advance of the speech. For the time being I have removed this app from my iPad, and will use Twitter, Google, and major news sources to check claims of interest to me.
Not real time
by TalentInc on 2019/02/06 17:13
I thought this was real time fact checking. An hour into the SOTU only 2 early lies were flagged.
Sketchy
by DixieEloise on 2019/02/06 04:25
You guys were all over the place. I couldn’t keep up or follow your fact checking. I see great potential but this needs work.
Funded by liberals

After trying it out and realizing how liberally biased it was, it crashed.

Terrible coverage. Why did I even bother? Better off on Twitter.
Didn’t happen

I downloaded this app for live fact checking of the SOTU address on the evening of 2/5. The wasn’t one live fact check. Very disappointing.
I only got two facts checked SOTU
by SpringdalePresbyterian on 2019/02/06 02:52
What happened?
Biggest speech, biggest fail
by G57754 on 2019/02/06 02:44
It's 942. No fact checks posted after 917pm. Biggest day of the year for you all. You're letting me down. But it looks like the stuff you at posting does have good content. Kinda like the Superbowl. You expect a big, exciting, high-scoring game... You get like 3 points.
SUTU
by gggg44444444444 on 2019/02/06 02:41
Nothing! Come on man.
Doesn’t work
by psmwrxguy on 2019/02/06 02:38
State of the Union happening and no fact checking updates. That’s its only job and it has failed at that.
Worthless
by Bob@#$&* on 2019/02/06 02:36
Got this for real time fact checking SOTU. No results.if I could give it zero stars, I would
Where are the fact checkers????
by ckismad on 2019/02/06 02:36
There was supposed to be live fact checking during the State of the Union speech. It’s 20 to 30 minutes into it and there’s only two posts. Where are they??what’s the point?? Worthless
Can't use for the SOTU.
by Gonz.0 on 2019/02/06 02:30
This app is still buggy. Keeps crashing when trying to view SOTU under the events tab, then nothing shows up.
Crashed
by bBrendaann on 2019/02/06 02:29
During the SOTU Address? Big bummer.
Bugs abound, unreliable, unintuitive
by BrothersInArtz on 2019/02/06 02:28
Saw two updates during SOTU, then everything goes blank and schedule gets cleared. Ridiculous. Stress test needed, maybe not when it’s live. Maybe it was a good try. Maybe. Disappointing.
Great idea...
by Hauling wind on 2019/02/01 03:30
But the app doesn't display more than 4 items.
Biased
by Carolwait on 2019/01/28 22:34
Anyone can give a thumbs down to anything said or written based on your own preference whether it is your Political or Ethical. If you are going to rate something false or half false you need to back it up with the corrections. It's as if you toss a coin to pick your response.
Facts?
by Neo48 on 2019/01/06 20:51
Facts are only on one political party! Where are the facts on the Democratic party?
Wonderful App — Gives the truth about the news
by JudefromMaine on 2018/12/30 19:51
I’m so glad that I found this App. It gives info from so many sources and keeps me informed of the truth about what the media is providing. I’d give this 10 stars if I could. Many thanks to the people who created this to help us sort out fact from fiction/disinformation!
App won’t refresh
by Jimguenter on 2018/12/03 03:22
As reported in other reviews, the app frequently refuses to refresh. Disappointing as the premise of this app is fantastic.
Immediate
by kaannie45 on 2018/11/26 16:47
In this world of instant news, this app gives you immediate feedback of truth. A 61 year old when asked if she is 60 can say NO. And that is the truth because she is 61. This app fixes that!
Noisy
by Mackidockie on 2018/11/13 19:29
Bizarre user interface. Ads pop up unpredictably. Busy. A time waster.
Finally!
by Verlie on 2018/11/12 19:43
Saw today that you had finally fixed the glitches in this app! Thanks. Now if it only works right again tomorrow!
Wish everyone had this app!!!!!
by specsoccerben on 2018/11/05 14:20
With this app you can see what is the truth and what is BS.
Blank Screen
by Gcsievers on 2018/11/01 16:22
Too often FactStream shows a blank screen when you chose an item to read and there is no way out of that situation. You cannot go back to the selection screen and try it again.
Can’t follow a story
by bet1063 on 2018/10/28 14:45
Tapping a home screen story leads to another story.
It’s a great idea...
by Seattle Portista on 2018/10/17 21:36
...that suffers from lousy execution. When I open the FactStream site on my iPad, I see a list of half a dozen “fact checked” quotations, mostly from the President of the United States, and mostly rated either false or dubious. Great— that’s why I downloaded the site in the first place. Unfortunately, when I tap one of the quotes, what comes up is something else entirely. One “4 Pinocchio” Trump quote gave me a statement by a candidate running for Congress from Minnesota; another gave me a half-true rating for a statement made by Republican candidate Dino Rossi some 20years ago, but which continues to haunt him. Rossi is at least running in my state, if not my district— the Trump quotes can’t be accessed. I liked the idea of being able to get all my fact-checking from a single source, rather that having to go to the Washington Post, then Politifact, then FactCheck.org. Apparently, it’s not going to work, at least for me. Too bad. I give FactStream’s description in AppStore three Pinocchios, for claiming to be able to do more than they can actually achieve.
Solid!
by Jenderle7 on 2018/10/11 21:19
Solid app using great sources. Unfortunately the same people that need this app in their lives are the same people that refute basic facts and logic and will deny these everything here anyways. The age of ignorance!
compilation of different sources
by PA Frey on 2018/10/10 17:20
i appreciate that the site provides access to different sources in a “one stop shopping” type of format. The links to the cited sources are easy to use.
Teaching

I wish I would have had this app when I taught US Government. I always encouraged my students to check sources and fact check. This is a great resource!

Truth finding App
by Techie009 on 2018/10/06 11:38
Before I post anything political, I fact check it first. This app has made it so simple to sort truth from lies, without having to search multiple sites. I love that the reputable fact checking organizations that I use, are conveniently accessible through this app.
There’s a reason Trump is in here so often
by davidlefavor on 2018/10/04 21:44
He lies so often. Trumpanzees, you are being deceived. If you don’t care that your guys lie so frequently, I feel sorry for you. Nah, not really.
Good App. Encourage Republicans to use it.
by Mangozulu on 2018/10/04 21:15
Facts get in the way of any Republican argument. This is a good app consolidating other sites. Chances are Dems are already using Fact-check and Politifact. Republicans will hate it.
Won’t refresh
by seranna 84750 on 2018/10/04 17:56
I REALLY like this app a lot, except for an apparent glitch. It won’t refresh, even when prompted. I can delete and reinstall for a refresh, but then it sticks there. Happens on iPhone and on iPad, both running iOS12. Too bad. Other than this big problem I’d give it 5 stars.
My issue with your site.......
by Shoebox 53 on 2018/10/03 13:03
It is strange that when I come across a questionable statement of some sort and I can’t check it out on your site since you have command of so many sites. As soon as I discover a site that does this, I will be leaving you .........
President Trump lies CONSTANTLY and this app proves it
by Jwalthour on 2018/09/28 17:39
Anyone who could possibly think that Trump is right and this app is wrong needs to have their head examined. The only truly fake news is every word out of Donald Trump’s mouth.
Repeated Posts and Push Notifications
by Cranrob on 2018/08/06 23:41
I love this app, but I don’t love that almost every post is repeated over and over. Please fix!
The Singular Truth
by Democracy Is Good on 2018/07/01 00:51
This app is a great way to sort the truth from the lies and distortions in the rumormill. This is an invaluable and extremely important tool in these chaotic times of disinformation.
Oh, shut up Trumpies!
by Jzdad on 2018/06/29 18:55
Here’s a clue for all you right-wing sheep. Just because you don’t like something the media reports doesn’t mean it’s fake. Unless it comes from Fox News. If ignorance is bliss, you righties must be very happy.
Are you kidding?
by Keepnbuzy on 2018/02/01 11:10
You can’t be a fact checker when your so far left. Your quoted a new article on the tax change from 2 months before the tax law was passed written by people that hate trump. It is now proven that none of what was written was true but you still quoted it.
Another Trump basher
by Mbgrant0714 on 2018/01/31 13:41
Typical news stream that doesn’t like Trump. Negative negative negative to read and attempting to down play ANY successes of the President’s accomplishments. Just another avenue to keep the American people in disapproval and angry. Delete or don’t download and just watch CNN for your “news” coverage and highly OPINIONATED presentation of what they want the people to hear. They talk of cherry picking for his successes when those that oppose him are the professionals at doing that.

by Rjg3164 on 2018/01/31 04:00
I used to think that democrats were not very smart to believe some of the things they believe, some of which lies are stated on this app, but then I've come to realize that they don't believe all this non sense, they just try to make everyone else believe it. It works on the stupid people I guess. The ones that can't think for themselves.

Description
FactStream helps you find the truth in American politics by bringing together the work of the three largest U.S. fact-checking organizations – the Washington Post, PolitiFact and FactCheck.org. During major events such as speeches and debates, you can follow along as our partners fact-check in real time. Key Features: See a daily stream of the latest fact-checks as they’re published. Receive notifications of the latest fact-checks on your iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Choose to get notifications of just the “worst” ratings such as “4 Pinocchios” or “Pants on Fire.” Search the latest fact-checks by name, subject or keyword. Follow live fact-checking during major political events such as political debates and major speeches. FactStream was developed as part of the Tech & Check Cooperative, a project of the Duke University Reporters’ Lab, which uses automation to help fact-checkers do their work and broaden the audience for this important journalism.

Easy 5 stars
by frankkenstin on 2019/04/06 05:32
This app congregates all of the fact checking institutions into one place. It is not partisan and keeps all sides in check. Very thorough, easy to navigate.
Factstream does not cover full spectrum of political ideology
by verymoderate on 2019/03/29 17:14
FactStream appears to have significant bias on who they report. Most off their fact checks are negative responses to moderate conservative ideals. Just another media outlet for liberal agendas. I support the rights of all people’s including those wishing to become citizens of the USA, the LGBT community and the protection of the unborn. FactStream does not give fair coverage across the political/ideology spectrum.
Only the truth, no party favorites
by hartmancf on 2019/03/07 21:33
This is only for those that want the truth, if you don’t want the truth no matter which party you belong to don’t join.
Finally, a quick way to check “alternative “ facts.
by Marlowe with an E on 2019/02/26 19:34
We are bombarded by “questionable” statements all the time and this app checks them automatically and gives you the REAL story. A must have for the easily swayed.
All in One Place
by ISKIGR8 on 2019/02/22 00:03
This app is great, informative and fun reading!
You can’t get more info
by Optimism227 on 2019/02/14 19:24
When I tap on a specific item from the homepage I am taken to another, entirely unrelated article. That makes no sense!
Tames the chaos
by CTMLAW on 2019/02/10 15:35
Too much information can be as bad as none, as the needles of truth are hidden in haystacks of misinformation. This app nicely help separate fact from fiction, calling on reputable analytical sources which cite references.
Nice try, but failed during the SOTU
by Neptue on 2019/02/06 17:17
This app looked promising. However, despite offering live fact checking during the 2019 State of the Union speech, the app streamed two checks in the first few minutes and nothing more. Maybe this app was too new, and not adequately debugged in advance of the speech. For the time being I have removed this app from my iPad, and will use Twitter, Google, and major news sources to check claims of interest to me.
Not real time
by TalentInc on 2019/02/06 17:13
I thought this was real time fact checking. An hour into the SOTU only 2 early lies were flagged.
Sketchy
by DixieEloise on 2019/02/06 04:25
You guys were all over the place. I couldn’t keep up or follow your fact checking. I see great potential but this needs work.
Funded by liberals
by nonbiased1 on 2019/02/06 03:17
After trying it out and realizing how liberally biased it was, it crashed.

SOTU
by slangman on 2019/02/06 03:05
Terrible coverage. Why did I even bother? Better off on Twitter.
Didn’t happen

I downloaded this app for live fact checking of the SOTU address on the evening of 2/5. The wasn’t one live fact check. Very disappointing.
I only got two facts checked SOTU
by SpringdalePresbyterian on 2019/02/06 02:52
What happened?
Biggest speech, biggest fail
by G57754 on 2019/02/06 02:44
It's 942. No fact checks posted after 917pm. Biggest day of the year for you all. You're letting me down. But it looks like the stuff you at posting does have good content. Kinda like the Superbowl. You expect a big, exciting, high-scoring game... You get like 3 points.
SUTU
by gggg44444444444 on 2019/02/06 02:41
Nothing! Come on man.
Doesn’t work
by psmwrxguy on 2019/02/06 02:38
State of the Union happening and no fact checking updates. That’s its only job and it has failed at that.
Worthless
by Bob@#$&* on 2019/02/06 02:36
Got this for real time fact checking SOTU. No results.if I could give it zero stars, I would
Where are the fact checkers????
by ckismad on 2019/02/06 02:36
There was supposed to be live fact checking during the State of the Union speech. It’s 20 to 30 minutes into it and there’s only two posts. Where are they??what’s the point?? Worthless
Can't use for the SOTU.
by Gonz.0 on 2019/02/06 02:30
This app is still buggy. Keeps crashing when trying to view SOTU under the events tab, then nothing shows up.
Crashed
by bBrendaann on 2019/02/06 02:29
During the SOTU Address? Big bummer.
Bugs abound, unreliable, unintuitive
by BrothersInArtz on 2019/02/06 02:28
Saw two updates during SOTU, then everything goes blank and schedule gets cleared. Ridiculous. Stress test needed, maybe not when it’s live. Maybe it was a good try. Maybe. Disappointing.
Great idea...
by Hauling wind on 2019/02/01 03:30
But the app doesn't display more than 4 items.
Biased
by Carolwait on 2019/01/28 22:34
Anyone can give a thumbs down to anything said or written based on your own preference whether it is your Political or Ethical. If you are going to rate something false or half false you need to back it up with the corrections. It's as if you toss a coin to pick your response.
Facts?
by Neo48 on 2019/01/06 20:51
Facts are only on one political party! Where are the facts on the Democratic party?
Wonderful App — Gives the truth about the news
by JudefromMaine on 2018/12/30 19:51
I’m so glad that I found this App. It gives info from so many sources and keeps me informed of the truth about what the media is providing. I’d give this 10 stars if I could. Many thanks to the people who created this to help us sort out fact from fiction/disinformation!
App won’t refresh
by Jimguenter on 2018/12/03 03:22
As reported in other reviews, the app frequently refuses to refresh. Disappointing as the premise of this app is fantastic.
Immediate
by kaannie45 on 2018/11/26 16:47
In this world of instant news, this app gives you immediate feedback of truth. A 61 year old when asked if she is 60 can say NO. And that is the truth because she is 61. This app fixes that!
Noisy
by Mackidockie on 2018/11/13 19:29
Bizarre user interface. Ads pop up unpredictably. Busy. A time waster.
Finally!
by Verlie on 2018/11/12 19:43
Saw today that you had finally fixed the glitches in this app! Thanks. Now if it only works right again tomorrow!
Wish everyone had this app!!!!!
by specsoccerben on 2018/11/05 14:20
With this app you can see what is the truth and what is BS.
Blank Screen
by Gcsievers on 2018/11/01 16:22
Too often FactStream shows a blank screen when you chose an item to read and there is no way out of that situation. You cannot go back to the selection screen and try it again.
Can’t follow a story
by bet1063 on 2018/10/28 14:45
Tapping a home screen story leads to another story.
It’s a great idea...
by Seattle Portista on 2018/10/17 21:36
...that suffers from lousy execution. When I open the FactStream site on my iPad, I see a list of half a dozen “fact checked” quotations, mostly from the President of the United States, and mostly rated either false or dubious. Great— that’s why I downloaded the site in the first place. Unfortunately, when I tap one of the quotes, what comes up is something else entirely. One “4 Pinocchio” Trump quote gave me a statement by a candidate running for Congress from Minnesota; another gave me a half-true rating for a statement made by Republican candidate Dino Rossi some 20years ago, but which continues to haunt him. Rossi is at least running in my state, if not my district— the Trump quotes can’t be accessed. I liked the idea of being able to get all my fact-checking from a single source, rather that having to go to the Washington Post, then Politifact, then FactCheck.org. Apparently, it’s not going to work, at least for me. Too bad. I give FactStream’s description in AppStore three Pinocchios, for claiming to be able to do more than they can actually achieve.
Solid!
by Jenderle7 on 2018/10/11 21:19
Solid app using great sources. Unfortunately the same people that need this app in their lives are the same people that refute basic facts and logic and will deny these everything here anyways. The age of ignorance!
compilation of different sources
by PA Frey on 2018/10/10 17:20
i appreciate that the site provides access to different sources in a “one stop shopping” type of format. The links to the cited sources are easy to use.
Teaching
by julysthebest on 2018/10/08 21:17
I wish I would have had this app when I taught US Government. I always encouraged my students to check sources and fact check. This is a great resource!

Truth finding App
by Techie009 on 2018/10/06 11:38
Before I post anything political, I fact check it first. This app has made it so simple to sort truth from lies, without having to search multiple sites. I love that the reputable fact checking organizations that I use, are conveniently accessible through this app.
There’s a reason Trump is in here so often
by davidlefavor on 2018/10/04 21:44
He lies so often. Trumpanzees, you are being deceived. If you don’t care that your guys lie so frequently, I feel sorry for you. Nah, not really.
Good App. Encourage Republicans to use it.
by Mangozulu on 2018/10/04 21:15
Facts get in the way of any Republican argument. This is a good app consolidating other sites. Chances are Dems are already using Fact-check and Politifact. Republicans will hate it.
Won’t refresh
by seranna 84750 on 2018/10/04 17:56
I REALLY like this app a lot, except for an apparent glitch. It won’t refresh, even when prompted. I can delete and reinstall for a refresh, but then it sticks there. Happens on iPhone and on iPad, both running iOS12. Too bad. Other than this big problem I’d give it 5 stars.
My issue with your site.......
by Shoebox 53 on 2018/10/03 13:03
It is strange that when I come across a questionable statement of some sort and I can’t check it out on your site since you have command of so many sites. As soon as I discover a site that does this, I will be leaving you .........
President Trump lies CONSTANTLY and this app proves it
by Jwalthour on 2018/09/28 17:39
Anyone who could possibly think that Trump is right and this app is wrong needs to have their head examined. The only truly fake news is every word out of Donald Trump’s mouth.
Repeated Posts and Push Notifications
by Cranrob on 2018/08/06 23:41
I love this app, but I don’t love that almost every post is repeated over and over. Please fix!
The Singular Truth
by Democracy Is Good on 2018/07/01 00:51
This app is a great way to sort the truth from the lies and distortions in the rumormill. This is an invaluable and extremely important tool in these chaotic times of disinformation.
Oh, shut up Trumpies!
by Jzdad on 2018/06/29 18:55
Here’s a clue for all you right-wing sheep. Just because you don’t like something the media reports doesn’t mean it’s fake. Unless it comes from Fox News. If ignorance is bliss, you righties must be very happy.
Are you kidding?
by Keepnbuzy on 2018/02/01 11:10
You can’t be a fact checker when your so far left. Your quoted a new article on the tax change from 2 months before the tax law was passed written by people that hate trump. It is now proven that none of what was written was true but you still quoted it.
Another Trump basher
by Mbgrant0714 on 2018/01/31 13:41
Typical news stream that doesn’t like Trump. Negative negative negative to read and attempting to down play ANY successes of the President’s accomplishments. Just another avenue to keep the American people in disapproval and angry. Delete or don’t download and just watch CNN for your “news” coverage and highly OPINIONATED presentation of what they want the people to hear. They talk of cherry picking for his successes when those that oppose him are the professionals at doing that.
Obvious leftist view
by Smashingboxes on 2018/01/31 12:40
would be nice if it was objective instead of having a left spin in every single thing. “Yea but.”
Fake news
by Rjg3164 on 2018/01/31 04:00
I used to think that democrats were not very smart to believe some of the things they believe, some of which lies are stated on this app, but then I've come to realize that they don't believe all this non sense, they just try to make everyone else believe it. It works on the stupid people I guess. The ones that can't think for themselves.
