About AAP FactCheck

AAP FactCheck is committed to truth and accuracy.

Our conclusions about the veracity of news and social media content are formed through rigorous questioning, careful consideration of evidence and verification using multiple sources.

The work of AAP FactCheck journalists is subjected to a strenuous review process in which the investigation processes and final report are cross-checked and challenged. We do not editorialise nor impose value judgments on the subject matter and we do not focus on one issue, one side of an argument or one source.

The AAP FactCheck team are experienced journalists trained in traditional and digital fact-checking methods. They work within a framework that is approved by the AAP Standards committee, compliant with AAP’s broader editorial standards and equal to industry best practice. We meet the highest international standards and are accredited with the Poynter Institute’s International Fact-Checking Network.

We welcome submissions from the public and media, and can be contacted at factcheck@aap.com.au with any suggestions or feedback.
