Tagesschau.de was founded in 1996 as an online supplement to the daily TV news programme but has since developed into a stand-alone news website run by the joint organisation of Germany's regional public broadcasters, ARD. Since 2017 the portal faktenfinder is also available on the site. According to their statement, it should serve to collect and correct phenomena such as political propaganda, rumors, lies and half-truths on the Internet.
