The International Fact-Checking Network updates its ‘Code of Principles’

In December 2019 verified signatories of the International Fact-Checking Network’s Code of Principles voted on some revisions to the Code of Principles. In April 2020 the IFCN updated its website describing its code, unveiling the new version to the public.

Zebra Fact Check issued a signing statement relating to the original code, affirming the parts we approved and stating the reasons why we did not regard other parts as necessary or even beneficial for fact-checking organizations.

We have started a review of the revised IFCN Code of Principles and will soon post a new version of our signing statement, along with commentary on the changes effected in the new code.
