The organization is compliant as a whole with the IFCN principles and can be accepted. It adopts a consisting fact check methodology and covers all relevant sides of public interest issues in Argentina, from political and economic issues to social and cultural ones. It has also clear and transparent policies for funding, corrections and actionable feedback. Its website makes a necessary disclaimer about a potential conflict of interest: its executive-director Laura Zommer marriage to Nicolás Ducoté, the mayor of Pilar municipality and member of Cambiemos, Argentina’s current ruling party.
