Pratik Sinha is the founder-editor of Alt News, a leading fact-checking portal that that is battling misinformation propagated in the Indian social media ecosystem, by mainstream media organisations, and by political parties. Previously, he worked as a software engineer for over 13 years, and specialised in embedded systems and wireless stacks. Alt News has been following a three-pronged approach—journalistic, technical, and educational. While the portal itself focuses on debunking and documenting misinformation, it has also launched an APP to help individuals recognise misinformation. It has also partnered with Google to train journalists, and is now training college students across India.
