Fact-Checking Policy

Fact-Checking Policy

All content used in News Conduct is to be thoroughly fact-checked before publication. All News Conduct reporters, writers, and editors have the responsibility of fact-checking stories.

At News Conduct, we have a multi-level structure for our fact-checking process. Each piece of content undergoes fact-checks at every stage of the creation of a story, from the origination, the writing, the drafting, to the preview. These include checks by reporters, copywriters, sub-editors, and senior editors.

Corrections Policy

News Conduct strives for accurate, complete, and unbiased coverage of news and events. The articles and news reports undergo thorough proofreading and fact-checks before they are published on the website. However, in case an error does make it to the final published content, it is completely unintentional.

News Conduct is prompt in responding to and correcting any errors in the content published on our digital website. We also run a correction, clarification, or an editor’s note, as the situation calls for, so that it is crystal clear to our readers, what was wrong and what is correct.

Updating Published Content

All published content is updated as and when required, keeping with the expectations of the readers in the digital age. We do not put notes on an article to signal that it has been updated every time an article is updated, as the time stamp already signals to the reader that they are reading a developing story. However, we do put up a note if the occasion warrants it. We also use a correction, clarification, or editor’s note when the correction is a result of a significant mistake.
