Talk: Post post-truth - Fact Checking at Full Fact

Will Moy is the Director of Full Fact, a UK-based independent factchecking charity. He appears regularly on TV, radio, and at events to discuss Full Fact's work, and to recount a factchecker's way through three referendums, the Leveson Inquiry into press standards, the European Parliamentary and the UK's 2015 general elections. For Talks at Google, Will Moy presents exciting insights into the life of a factchecker in a, supposedly, post-truth world. From the number of adult cod in the North Sea to the way representatives in the European Parliament are elected, the range of subjects is immense. So what do you do if you don't know which claims are correct, and which are false?
