Describe your idea:
Ministers and Political Parties make speeches, write articles and publish reams of policy papers. More often than not, they make big claims, but don’t back them up. doyoubelievethem.com would be a wiki style project where major articles and announcements can be commented on, not with blog style comments of partisan bickering, but with sources to prove or disprove what is being said.
What problem does it solve?:
Major announcements are usually just reported verbatim or followed up by a comment piece which just seeks to reinforce a point of view. By actually analysing what is being said, and by ensuring that only referenced sources are accepted onto the site, we can have more accurate reporting, and perhaps more accurate politicians and press
Type of idea: A brand new project
