Truco is acknowledged in Brazil as a relevant fact-checking project created by Agência Publica. Although the project is pretty solid, an additional explanation could be developed by Agencia Publica: guarantee more transparency about the difference between Agencia Publica and Truco, making (i) a clear distinction whether the network of advisors serves both Agencia and Truco or not; (ii) also, be open about which funding goes to Truco.
