Complaint to the International Fact-Checking Network regarding PolitiFact, May 2019

In May 2019 we lodged a complaint with the International Fact-Checking Network charging that PolitiFact’s failure to fix a demonstrable error in its reporting helped show PolitiFact’s failure to scrupulously comply with an open and honest corrections policy.

We are unsure of the exact date the message was sent to the IFCN. Typically we wait at least a week after our attempt to coax a correction out of PolitiFact.

We sent our message to PolitiFact on May 13, 2019.

The text of our complaint to the IFCN follows in .pdf format.
