We’re living in an age of misinformation. From coronavirus to climate change, via TikTok trends and Facebook memes, being certain about the truth is more important than ever – and more difficult to distinguish.

USA TODAY has unveiled a new service for digital subscribers, an SMS text chat that allows subscribers to connect with our expert fact-checking team of experienced reporters.

See a meme and want clarification? We’ve got you covered. Want a behind-the-scenes breakdown of why something going viral is not real? The answer is just a text away.

Our mission is to provide the ultimate clarity during trending news or misinformation events, and host weekly “office hours” to dive deeper into the week’s biggest topics.
