Conclusion and recommendations

According to my second assessment, I think CheckNews continues to be a reliable fact-checking partner. They are compliant with most of the principles enacted by the IFCN.
The only points of uncertainty are that CheckNews doesn't detail its fact-checking methodology clearly with all the steps the journalists follow for their fact-checking work and CheckNews doesn't have a public page listing all corrections made.
So criterions 5a and 6b are partially compliant. But we can consider and hope that these criteria will be improved for the next time. This is highly desirable.
