I recommend Tirto.id to be part of the IFCN, but I recommend the applicant to update its funding information and improve its corrections policy.
In the past year, Tirto.id's fact-checking arm has raised its stature. In early April last year, it became part of Facebook's Third Party Fact-Checking Program: https://tirto.id/facebook-gandeng-tirtoid-untuk-program-third-party-fact-checking-cG7s
