Raskrinkavanje has published 170 articles in last 3 moths (September-November). Articles are categorized as: regular fact-checks, occasional topical analysis of media reporting and weekly reviews that include an overview of what we wrote about in the previous 7 days.
We use a system with 15 ratings for our fact checks, developed in a way which covers different kinds of disinformation we encounter in the media.
Fact-checks are categorized by the ratings as defined by the methodology. One fact-check can have multiple ratings, so one article can appear in multiple categories.:

We also use other types of content categorization, such as:
Archiving and sorting all the debunked articles and their sources
So far we have analyzed 800 articles or social media items, from 820 media outlets. Each article is copied and archived on the website and each media outlet has its profile with all available information (impressum, url, ownership, related social media pages). Article database is available at: https://raskrinkavanje.ba/clanci and the media database is available at: https://raskrinkavanje.ba/mediji?page=1
Raskrinkavanje has a “red flag” and “high risk” lists of media whose content we analyzed:
Red flag - https://raskrinkavanje.ba/red-flag-mediji
Each media that has been an original source of fake news gets on this list for each such report. Each media that has at least three ratings for “transmitting fake news", automatically gets on this list. If the media doesn’t receive such rating again in the period of 3 months (i.e. it doesn’t not create or repost any fake news), it is taken off the list. If the media outlet publishes a correction in accordance to the standards prescribed in the methodology, it is removed from the list.
High risk - https://raskrinkavanje.ba/high-risk-mediji
High-risk list includes the media that potentially publish reports of questionable credibility. The media which have published at least three articles that had receive any rating other than “fake news” or “transmitting fake news” in the last three months, get on this list automatically.
