complaint to the international fact-checking network about PolitiFact

On May 26, 2020 Zebra Fact Check followed up on its correction request submitted to PolitiFact by lodging a formal complaint about PolitiFact to the International Fact-Checking Network.

The complaint suggests that PolitiFact’s failure to abide by its own principles for purposes of a Truth-O-Meter rating fail the IFCN Code of Principles on the issue of fairness. Further, PolitiFact’s failure to correct the obvious inconsistency results in a breach of the IFCN standard calling for scrupulous observance of its corrections policy.

PolitiFact’s mistake remained uncorrected as of March 11, 2020.
