Hearst Places A Big ‘FactCheck’ On Election 2020


Hearst Television and FactCheck.org are partnering this election season on “Commitment 2020” designed to examine the “election discourse” in every state. Hearst TV has a presence in 26 markets that reach into 39 states across the nation.

“Study after study shows local television to be the most trusted news source for Americans,” said Jordan Wertlieb, president of Hearst Television. “Our teams are well positioned to provide comprehensive coverage of the issues that matter most to voters in their hometowns and regions.”

Journalists from Hearst stations across the country will not only report from their markets but in neighboring states. The collaboration with FactCheck.org is an effort to identify misinformation so voters will just have the facts.
