The article fact-checks Erdoğan's claim by referencing the university's official history and the official gazette records, demonstrating that the claim is false.

Are Verification Agencies Really Effective?

30 Sep 2021  |  NewsLabTurkey
Fact-checking organizations have become increasingly influential in the digital media landscape, prompting actors and readers to think twice before sharing information. With over 341 organizations worldwide, fact-checking is present in more than half of the countries globally. Despite the growth in the number of fact-checking entities, misinformation persists, raising questions about their effectiveness. In Turkey, as of August 2021, there are seven fact-checking organizations. The success of these organizations is measured by their reach, volume of fact-checking, and ability to reduce misinformation during crises. However, the impact of fact-checking is limited by societal polarization and selective exposure to information, which can undermine the effectiveness of fact-checking efforts.
