About Facteroid

Facteroid is a new kind of news platform. Our mission is to provide the facts about newsworthy topics concisely and in context. We use a combination of data aggregation, crowdsourcing, and staff editors to present timelines, expert Q&A, data charts and tables and other useful information.

We strive to provide information that is factual, contextual, and transparent.


Facts matter today more than ever. Our mission is to collect facts about news topics and separate the factual reporting of events from opinions that intentionally or unintentionally color traditional news articles.


Even accurate facts can be misleading when taken out of context. We strive to present data and facts in their proper context.


We believe that nobody should be taken at their word—including us. Our goal is to link every piece of information we present back to its original source so you can verify it yourself.
