Untrue.News


http://untrue.news/

Untrue News is a new search engine for fake stories. Untrue News offers a multilingual option that combines fake stories from different countries and languages around the same topic or person. The search engine was developed by students of the Technische Universitat Berlin, Germany, the Universitat de Valencia, Spain and the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil. It is a crawler-based search engine that searches a whitelist of reliable websites (fact-checking agencies). The results are ranked according to relevance and no personal data of users is collected.

On the results page, an image and video search is also displayed, but these currently do not show any results (as of February 2020).
