I guess that your 'fact checking routines' are what normally are called ontologies.
The checking part would the consistency check of the available data with the ontologies themselves.
You falled in a self-referential loop :-)
Not to mention that it is impossible to check the consistency of all the available data in the semantic web with the ontologies.
