Fact Checking Policy

Don't Forget To Share

At Pahari Patrika, we are dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information to our readers. We understand the importance of fact-checking in journalism and strive to uphold the highest standards of factual accuracy. This Fact Checking Policy outlines our commitment to verifying information and ensuring the integrity of our news reporting.

1. Commitment to Accuracy

We prioritize accuracy in our news reporting. Our journalists and editors are responsible for conducting thorough research and fact-checking before publishing any information. We aim to present verified and substantiated facts to the best of our ability.

2. Multiple Source Verification

We rely on multiple sources to verify the accuracy of the information we publish. Our journalists cross-reference information from various reputable sources to ensure its credibility. We prioritize primary sources whenever possible and seek expert opinions to provide balanced and reliable coverage.

3. Identifying Opinion and Analysis

We distinguish between factual news reporting and opinion or analysis pieces. While we strive for objectivity in our news reporting, we recognize the importance of providing diverse perspectives. Opinion and analysis articles are clearly labeled as such to avoid confusion between factual information and subjective viewpoints.

4. Corrections and Updates

If errors or inaccuracies are identified in our articles, we promptly correct them and acknowledge the correction at the bottom of the article. We take responsibility for our mistakes and ensure that our readers are informed about any necessary corrections or updates.

5. Transparent Sources and Attribution

We attribute information, quotes, and data to their original sources to maintain transparency and credibility. Our journalists strive to provide clear and accurate attributions, ensuring that readers can trace the information back to its origin.

6. Evaluation of Sources

We evaluate the credibility and reliability of sources before including them in our news reporting. We prioritize well-established and reputable sources known for their accuracy and integrity. We exercise caution when using anonymous sources and only do so when necessary and in accordance with rigorous journalistic standards.

7. Fact Checking Routine

We have established a systematic fact-checking routine as an integral part of our news production process. Our journalists and editors are trained to identify claims, statements, and information that require verification. We allocate time and resources to conduct thorough fact checks before publishing articles.

8. Transparency and Accountability

We are committed to transparency and accountability in our fact-checking practices. We are open to feedback and encourage readers to bring potential inaccuracies to our attention. We provide a clear process for readers to report errors, and we take such reports seriously, investigating them and making corrections when necessary.

9. Continuous Learning and Improvement

We continuously strive to improve our fact-checking processes and stay updated on the latest tools and methodologies in the field of fact checking. We invest in training and development opportunities for our journalists and editors to enhance their fact-checking skills and ensure that we maintain the highest standards of accuracy.
