About

True or False? is a project of The Henry Mayhew Foundation, set up to investigate inaccurate and misleading reports in the mass media.

  • We take claims and examine them in-depth according to an agreed methodology.
  • We then publish our verdict with supporting research and analysis.
  • We investigate claims that have a significant influence on public opinion and understanding in areas such as the world of art, science and public affairs.

We invite you to suggest claims for us investigate that you think are inaccurate, misleading and detrimental to the public interest.
