Poynter: With money from Facebook, this Brazilian fact-checker created a Messenger bot for the election. “Six months ahead of the Brazilian election, one fact-checker is using support from Facebook to better reach its readers. The project, called ‘Projeto Lupe!’, allows people to ask for verified information on everything from candidate statements to viral fake news stories — all by sending Agência Lupa a message on Facebook, which has about 125 million monthly users in Brazil.”
