All you never wanted to know about cookies: https://allaboutcookies.org

Best adblockers for Firefox: https://allaboutcookies.org/best-ad-blockers-for-firefox

Best adblockers for Google Chrome: https://allaboutcookies.org/best-ad-blockers-for-chrome

Might be worthwhile reading the short Advertiser Disclosure

Interesting which ones are recommended and which aren't.

There's a couple of test sites mentioned on the Firefox page, not sure about adblock-tester.com but coveryourtracks is OK.

Snopes.com is well known for fact checking but mostly US news and hoaxes. 

FullFact.org is a UK-based registered charity that checks claims made by politicians, public institutions and journalists, as well as viral content online including Facebook posts. such as:
