Complaint to the IFCN regarding PolitiFact, October 2018

On October 5, 2018 we submitted a complaint through the IFCN noting PolitiFact Missouri’s ruling on a claim from Republican Josh Hawley unduly ignored the precision of Hawley’s statement.

This complaint differs from most of the others in that PolitiFact sent a response. It is worth noting that we specifically requested a response in this case.

It is also worth noting that the response from PolitiFact editor Katie Sanders was essentially dismissive.

The text of our .pdf message to the IFCN follows. It was sent before we received Sanders’ reply.
