Contacting the media
Africa Check monitors and tests the accuracy of claims made in the public arena and publishes reports. We are not a media ombudsman or regulator. To take up an issue with any media we suggest you:
- Contact the editor/producer of a publication or broadcast and explain the issue or complaint.
- If you have no success, take up the matter with the publication or broadcaster’s Ombudsman, where they have one.
- Failing that, one can take the matter up with the industry self-regulatory authorities.
