From fact checker to spook
In June 2023, Kristoffer Egeberg, editor of "Norway's only independent fact checker" Faktisk.no, quit his job to start working for PST. He will lead PST's section for open sources. "Digging and researching in open online sources is really the essence of what I have been working on in recent years. It will therefore be incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to participate in the development of this field at PST", said Egeberg. He claimed that this would be a new development in his career: "I look forward to learning the intelligence profession and working for society in a different way than through journalism".
