Did Cyclone Ockhi strike with a hailstone storm in Panvel, Mumbai? Is this video from Mumbai’s Bandra-Worli Sealink? Did a Muslim migrant beat up Dutch boy on crutches as claimed by Donald Trump? Watch episode-11 Of Fact Vs Fiction where Suyash Barve & Jency Jacob discuss the fake news stories in the last one week and how you can spot them on social media.
BOOM is an independent digital journalism initiative. We are India's first journalist-driven fake news busting and fact checking website, committed to bring to our readers verified facts rather than opinion. When there is a claim, we will fact check it. We also report on stories and people who are fighting for individual rights, freedom of expression and the right to free speech. And some cool stuff when we are not doing that.
