Fact-Checking Policy

Reality-Checking coverage

  • At, we uphold the utmost commitment to delivering accurate and reliable information across all our content. To achieve this, we go to great lengths to ensure the due accuracy of our output. This entails investigating claims with skepticism, questioning assumptions, and challenging conventional wisdom.
  • Our dedication to due accuracy is fundamental to our reputation and the trust of our audiences. We understand that the term ‘due’ refers to accuracy that is adequate and appropriate for the output, taking into account the subject and nature of the content. Additionally, we explicitly mention and underline any constraint that may influence that expectation.
  • We ensure that all our output, as relevant to its content and nature, is well-sourced, based on available evidence, and corroborated. Our commitment to honesty and openness is demonstrated by our willingness to admit what we do not know and avoid unfounded speculation.
  • Our journalists never engage in deliberate plagiarism or distort facts or context, including visual information. We seek independent verification from sources to confirm claims, information, and allegations, especially those made by public officials or anyone with an agenda beyond merely reporting the truth. Claims, allegations, material facts, and other content that cannot be corroborated are attributed as such.
  • We stand by the information we publish and consider it to be accurate. If proven otherwise, we make the necessary changes as quickly as possible. We do not knowingly and materially mislead our audiences. We do not distort facts or present invented material as facts that can undermine our audiences’ trust in our content. In the event of serious factual errors, we acknowledge and correct them quickly, clearly, and appropriately.
  • At, we provide a fair opportunity for the public to report any inaccuracies or errors in our reportage through our ‘Suggest A Correction’ section at the end of every web story we publish.
  • Our content writers’ primary responsibility is to report, write, and fact-check stories. All stories are subject to review by one or more editors. We have a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence. The seniority of editors who review a story prior to publication varies depending on a range of factors, including complexity, sensitivity, and time pressure.
  • Despite our continuous strive for excellence and accuracy, we understand that mistakes can happen. When they do, we take responsibility for correcting them and maintain a high level of transparency to ensure all parties are confident that the incorrect information does not spread.
  • To achieve the goals of accuracy, transparency, and excellence, readers who spot errors should contact the support team immediately by email at Our commitment to due accuracy is unwavering, and we will continue to work tirelessly to provide reliable and trustworthy content to our audiences.

Our Correction Policies

  • To ensure the proper correction of any errors on, readers must contact via email. Corrections sent to other staff members may not receive timely attention, or any attention at all. When submitting corrections by email or mail, readers should provide all necessary information, including the correction itself, the issue date or number, where the error was originally seen (whether in print or online), the reader’s name, and a phone number or email address where they can be reached. Additionally, readers should include the correct information and a source where that information can be verified. 
  • After receiving a correction, the content writers will investigate the error, using all available information, including the reader’s submission, meeting minutes, reporter’s recordings, and other sources. If an error is found, the content writers will issue a correction in all forms in which the incorrect information was disseminated.
  • For, the article will be corrected and an editor’s note will be added to the bottom of the article indicating what was incorrect and when it was changed. Finally, on any social media platform controlled by, a post will be made linking to the corrected article and noting the correction.
  • Once the correction has been made, the content writers will contact the reader who submitted the correction and inform them of the steps that were taken to correct the error. However, it should be noted that submitting a correction does not guarantee that a correction will be issued, but rather guarantees that the error will be investigated.
