Conclusion and recommendations
Ivana Jeremic wrote:
Faktograf fulfils most of the criteria. It has a clear methodology of fact-checking of the statements. Since it is a project based on the principles of journalists’ objectivity and fairness my conclusion, having in mind all the examples and evidences sent, is that Faktograf represents a good candidate and should be accepted with minor changes which can improve their transparency. Along with Istinomer and Istinomjer, Faktograf is a pioneer of fact-checking in the Balkans.
