Headline: CiteEvidence launches Kickstarter for 'massive' fact-checking

CiteEvidence.org will hold a fundraiser and public voting campaign to determine which major news source will be fact-checked on a large scale by the organization. Their Massive Media Check campaign intends to fact-check ten thousand news articles from the news source that receives the most votes from donors. A weighted voting system will be used whereby each donor will receive and control one vote for every dollar they contribute to the campaign. The goal of the Massive Media Check is to help add to the company's evidence database which is used by their Fact Checker browser extension to annotate web pages that have been fact-checked by its users. Their Kickstarter runs through August 18, 2016.
