Jane Elizabeth and Alexios Mantzarlis review the state of the fact checking art and list nine characteristics of the best fact checkers: "The best fact checks clearly display each and every research source used — by uploading documents, video, audio, spreadsheets, notes, photos, even book pages. Any hyperlinks go directly to the data chart, or the precise page of the PDF. And if needed, the writer includes an explanation or directions on how to use the data."
