Meedan designs creative tools
for globally minded journalists and educators.

On the Blog — June 2014

Meedan’s digital media verification toolkit Checkdesk has been selected amongst the winners of the prestigious Knight News Challenge, winning Prototype Fund support to fund research, development and testing of new features.

Journalist Josh Stearns, who runs the popular Verification Junkie web site, recently called the project “one of the most well thought out and holistic verification tools I had seen created for newsrooms.”
