ThatsNonsense.com is one of the leading websites on the Internet that deals with debunking Internet hoaxes, hearsay, rumours and fake news.
The site deals with other pressing issues including the impact of social media on society and the various security and privacy concerns that are pushed into the forefront as a result of an increasingly interconnected digital age.
It was founded in 2009 by Craig Charles Haley who currently serves at the website editor and main contributor. The site HQ is based in the lovely county of Somerset in England, near the picturesque Georgian city of Bath. We have a number of contributors including John Gale, Thoman Newman, Caroline Black and David Turner.
The aim of ThatsNonsense.com is education though unbiased reporting of the facts. When possible, we provide links to reputable sources to back-up the information we post in our articles, or at least provide enough detail so that our work can be replicated by any other fact checker.
We are not affiliated with or funded by any entity that would cause our work to be subject to any conflict of interest. More information on how our website is funded can be seen below. We work solely with the objective facts in mind, regardless of what side of any spectrum a particular piece of misinformation may be attacking or defending. Our extensive archive of articles demonstrates this perfectly.
If anyone has any legitimate reason to believe any of the information we write is inaccurate, then we invite any of our readers to let us know and we will investigate, and if necessary, edit any article and make a note inside the article exactly what information was changed and why. Any concerns can be addressed to [nonsense at thatsnonsense dot com.]
All our writers work on a voluntary basis, and we do not give financial rewards to any author to write an article. The site is funded both by adverts and affiliate marketing.
Adverts appear on the majority of our webpages and we receive financial compensation as a result. We also recommend various products on some of our posts, and receive a commission if our readers like them to and make a purchase. We will only ever recommend products that we believe are worthwhile and think our readers could benefit from.
Thanks for using our website. We’re passionate about making the Internet a safer place for everyone and helping curb the surge of misinformation – in whatever form it takes – from plaguing the Internet. If you have any questions or comments, please let us know.
