Fact Checking Policy

 

The Netizen News is committed to doing its best to publish accurate information across all of its content. We take many steps to ensure accuracy: We investigate claims with scepticism; question assumptions; and challenge conventional wisdom. We mostly raise regional community issues that are helpful in rural, social and environmental development. This means all our output, as appropriate to its content and nature, must be well-sourced, based on available evidence, and corroborated.

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 is normally to be attributed.

We provide a fair opportunity for the public to report any inaccuracies or errors in our reportage via ‘Suggest A Correction’ section that appears at the end of every web-story that is published.

Our journalists’ primary responsibility is reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories. Stories are subject to review by one or more editors. The Logical Indian has a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence. The seniority of editors who review a story prior to publication varies on a range of factors, including complexity, sensitivity, and the pressure of time.
