The present time brings a disinformation war on many fronts and it is certainly not easy to find your way around it. Politically, media, marketers, but often our loved ones, who share various nonsense circulating on the Internet, attack us with slightly distorted statements, pictures or videos.

If you want to prove to them (or just to yourself) that a train packed by refugees did not actually arrive at the station and that the Russians did not start a war so that Ukrainian children in the Czech Republic have free admission to the zoo, try to refute their reports, for example www.manipulatori.cz.

The main activity of this journalistic website is to check the facts. Its editors and collaborators try to refute hoaxes and other misinformation or verify the statements of politicians and other public officials. You can also find scams such as fake contests, fraudulent e-shops or products on the website.

At the same time, the portal tries to monitor the disinformation scene and draws attention to specific people who consciously and programmatically disseminate disinformation. You also have several instructions on how to deal with misinformation, or the Lexicon section, which is a continuously updated set of factual passwords and serves as a glossary explaining important terms, as well as a signpost that will take you to articles on the topic you are looking for. Last but not least, the web also examines history in relation to misinformation and manipulative behavior.
