Mission:

“Fact Check is an agenda-free zone; it fearlessly follows the facts no matter where they lead.

It does not seek to influence voters or push for a particular outcome or be a dispenser of ‘truth’.

We do not speculate on the motives of those of who may get it wrong and we are not about ‘gotcha’ moments.”
