Maldita.es is a non profit organisation devoted to fighting against disinformation. Our mission is to help citizens make decisions with verified information in hand and to prevent them from “being fooled” by misinformation. It does so through fact-checking, production of explainers, data journalism, technology, education, and new narratives. Furthermore, we do Media Literacy, Academic Research, and Public Policy in order to build a society that everyday grows more capable to identify dis and misinformation before sharing it.
