Poynter Fact Check media bias rating is Center.

Poynter's fact check section has a Center bias, according to a July 2021 Small Group Editorial Review by AllSides editors on the left, center, and right.

Poynter posted a variety of fact-check pieces, including fact-checks from Politifact and its newsletter, Factually, in which it compiles fact-checks. The review by AllSides staff in July 2021 found that this page aligned with Poynter’s bias rating of Center.

The nonprofit Poynter Institute for Media Studies owns PolitiFact, which AllSides rates separately. 

Poynter not only has a fact-checking site, but launched the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) in 2015. The IFCN created a code of principles that fact-checking sites can commit to, including transparency of funding and commitment to non-partisanship. The IFCN audits and monitors these fact-checking sites to assure they are following the principles.
