      Over the past year, The Fact Checker has expanded our video series well beyond fact-checking U.S. politicians. We introduced a comprehensive guide to manipulated video, explained the complex history of Turkey and the Kurds and investigated conflicting reports of violence in Kashmir. And now we’re trying something new.
