Four of Sweden's biggest media outlets recently announced they'll be working together on a joint project to scrutinize facts as the general election approaches this fall.

Swedish Television, two of the nation's big daily newspapers Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagladet, and Swedish Radio, are collaborating in order to combat disinformation and raise awareness about evaluating information and the sources it comes from.

Martin Jönsson, head of the editorial development at Dagens Nyheter, details how the project will work - and discusses what might limit its success.
