“I propose a National Endowment for Fact-Checking (NEFC), modeled on the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). The NED is an independent, non-governmental foundation established in 1983 to strengthen “democratic institutions around the world.” By analogy, the NEFC’s mission would be to strengthen democracy at home. Like the NED, the NEFC would distribute federal funds to grantees—in this case, independent, non-partisan organizations that monitor electronic communications and perform key fact-checking functions.”
