Frustrated with straw man attacks on many public intellectuals, we founded the Scholar Fact-Check as a way to combat fake news and create a compendium of the positions that these men and women actually hold. Though we’re still early in our development, we expect many bumps along the way, we seek for great rigor and attention to detail in properly citing every claim we make. Please let us know if you find an error, any error, on the website and if we can verify an error has been made we will correct it and file a notice of correction.
