Mythopedia - Media Matters Take Action

Mythopedia

For most of us, conservative misinformation is part of everyday life. A relative worries about Obamacare "death panels." A coworker is certain that scientists manipulate data to support climate change. A friend posts on Facebook that more guns mean less crime.

Too often, we let lies stick around just because it's tough to correct the record in mid-conversation. But what if it were easy?

Media Matters is excited to introduce Mythopedia, a new tool for fighting back against right-wing misinformation.

Mythopedia is the dictionary of conservative lies. It's a simple factchecker that fits in your pocket and even responds to voice commands. We've seeded it with 400 common myths -- and we want you to tell us what to add next.

Check out how it works in this short video:
