Hi, my name is Mike De Socio.

I’m an award-winning, independent journalist and fact-checker.

My deep experience in reporting, writing and editing has given me a sharp eye for fact-checking, a thorough vetting process and a passion for collaborating with writers.

I love the opportunity to dig into a piece, comb through each and every fact, and make sure it’s air-tight before it goes out into the world.


I offer fact-checking services for a variety of media, including online and print journalism, magazines, podcasts, documentaries and books.

I’ve done fact-checking work for Vox Media and American City Business Journals, among others. I’m known for being organized, efficient and thorough in my work. You can view some examples of past fact-checking work below.

100 Battles Magazine

I fact-checked two feature-length articles for the first edition of 100 Battles, a business magazine created by a global team of journalists and documentary photographers.

Albany Business Review

As the digital editor of a regional business publication, I fact-checked news and feature stories on a daily basis ahead of publication on our website.
