On Dec. 18, 2020 Zebra Fact Check submitted a new complaint about the mainstream fact checker PolitiFact to the International Fact-Checking Network.

PolitiFact and the IFCN are both owned by the nonprofit Poynter Institute.

In a nutshell, the complaint points toward a long-running study of PolitiFact’s subjective application of its “Pants on Fire” rating as evidence PolitiFact does not exhibit nonpartisanship and fairness in its judgments as the IFCN Code of Principles would require.
