Statements can be both accurate and inaccurate, depending on when they were said. 

For us to fact-check a claim or statement, it must be:

  • made in public and which can be attributed to a specific person (e.g., a politician or campaigner) or organisation" like a report)
  • an assertion or allegation that can be validated or refuted (to a degree)
  • based on past or present actions (i.e., not speculative about the future)
  • a statement of fact. We cannot fact-check an opinion
