Nexis® for Journalism

Avoid a fake news faux pas

Thanks to round-the-clock news cycles and always-on social media, one tweet can turn into a worldwide sensation in the blink of an eye. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get caught up in the hype—especially when you have deadlines looming. More than once in recent years, reputable news organizations have had to retract a story because of flawed facts.

Nexis® empowers just-in-time research and analysis, so you can check your facts fast, and earn the trust of your audiences.
