When to fact-check: When the news subject is stating an event, or describing what had transpired (or generally: describing the shape, color, movement of a relevant object), and the news reporter knows, or has an idea it is not accurate: There is a need to fact-check right away or else…
if no live or simultaneous or immediate fact-checking is made, the news reporter is giving the false statement the appearance of truth.
