Conclusion and recommendations
Margot Susca wrote:
If IFCN were ever to standardize its practice for news organizations starting fact checking sub-groups or for independent groups interested in doing "just" fact checking, The Fact Checker should be its model. Information is clear, concise and easy-to-use. Its fact checks don't show bias and the group is transparent about who it is, what it does and how it does it.
I will note that in my ~2 years conducting IFCN assessments, I believe this may be the first I have done for an organization that has its fact checks behind a pay wall. I mention it not to criticize the operation or its work, just to note it.
