Fact Checking Policy
We are very clear and precise with words, headlines, and URLs. We understand that words have the utmost power and act accordingly. We are committed to doing our best to publish accurate information on our website.
How we Fact Check?
Our editors go through each article, word by word, in order to ensure the factual accuracy and consistency of the article, and that the conclusion drawn or point presented at the end of each article is derived from credible, accessible, and verifiable sources, in order to help the readers to fact-check the piece themselves.
We use online fact-checkers in certain circumstances if needed. We are committed to non-partisanship, transparency of sources, transparency of funding, and being open to reasonable criticism and corrections in our organization. We check the information with all related parties before publishing it online.
By the time an article is published, it goes through three independent layers of editing and fact-checking, and the people involved are independent to the domain, thus leaving no room for bias or inaccuracy.
How Our Writers Write?
Our writer’s primary responsibility is reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories. Stories are subject to review by one or more editors. We have multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence.
Our writers verify every information before they write artcles. This includes identifying information such as names, locations, factual statements, and accounts related to the content. Writers do their own fact-checking using their own judgment and information under the light of our Ethics Policy.
We strive to be honest and open about what we don’t know and avoid unfounded speculation. We will never plagiarize deliberately or distort facts or context, including visual information knowingly. Before posting a article we spent equal amount of time on all pressing issues for that cycle and ensure claims, perspectives, and opinions of all parties in contention are given unrestricted and visible space on our website for a better understanding of the readers.
Our Correction Policy
We will never mislead our audiences. If proven otherwise, we change the news /information as quickly as possible. If we receive a claim regarding fact-checking on our website, we first contact the source of the claim for further elaboration and supporting information.
Research and Validation
We also contact individuals and organizations who would have more information about or have relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as researching relevant literature (news articles, scientific and medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, statistical sources) that has bearing on the topic.
We do not distort facts, or present invented material as facts, that can undermine our audiences’ trust in our content. We acknowledge serious factual errors and correct them quickly, clearly and appropriately.
We prefer to use unbiased information and data sources viewed by our equals, as much as possible. We also alert our readers that information and data from sources, such as political advocacy organizations and sided parties, should be evaluated considerately.
