Australian “Fact-Checkers” Are Not Certified?

Two of Australia’s biggest “fact-checkers” @rmit_factlab and @ABCFactCheck are not in compliance with @Meta’s policies on certification with the International Fact Checking Network (IFCN), even though both organisations are listed as official META partners and proudly display the IFCN certification on it’s websites.

One certification expired in Sep 22, and the other in Dec 22.

META however have announced that RMIT FactLab will be leading the charge on fact-checking the Voice to Parliament content on it’s platforms, despite the organisation not meeting it’s own strict standards.

What’s going on?
