Ten fact-checks proving the consistency of our fact-checking:
We fact-check statements of top officials, members of government, members of parliament and other elected officials and deputies, including local authorities. We fact-check claims made by the members of ruling parties as well as by the opposition. We are focused on statements of great public interest or on statements that are in the public eye at the moment. We also debunk common untruths or misconceptions which achieve prominence on social media.
We maintain coherent standards across fact-checks, regardless whether it's a claim of the ruling politician or opposition. However, our researches are more focused on the government members and members of influential groups because their decisions have greater impact on everyday lives of the citizens.
In every fact-check we have the same procedure – we give link on the public statement and then we try to determine the truth by comparing what is said with documents, registers, statistics, court decisions, articles previously published on this topic or the opinion of eminent experts.
We have five grades – from “Ni f od Fakta“ that stands for statements that are completely untrue to “Fakt“, meaning that the statement is completely based on facts. Grades are explained on our website http://faktograf.hr/sto-su-ocjene/ Grade for every statement is placed in the corner of the picture added to the article. During the last year we've started to work more intently on debunking false information, as they started to appear more often within Croatian social media, but mainstream news media as well. We don't award grades to topics we debunk.
