Corrections Policy

In order to provide its audience with accurate and thorough news stories, relies on all the information available at the moment the news is reported. As soon as we become aware of any inaccuracies in the information on Our Website, we make every effort to address them as soon as possible.

In addition to rectifying the inaccuracy in our content, we provide a digital platform to run corrections and clarifications on Our social media accounts or to provide an editor’s note outlining the changes made and exactly what the issue was. If we make a significant error that could result in the spread of false information, we promptly and properly apologize to our readers.

Revision of a Report

If an article has been updated, we always acknowledge it in the notes section. Every time We amend an article to reflect feedback and updates from a stakeholder, or whenever We rectify a substantial error, it is crucial that We notify readers with a correction, clarification, or editor’s note.

When a factual error is discovered during our fact-check (which is done in accordance with our fact-check policy, which is available at [“Fact-Check Policy”]), we update the article as necessary and note in bold at the top of the page, “[Correction: updated Info…]” what was fixed. Additionally, we ask community members to report mistakes to, and we also give readers the option to recommend edits at the end of each article.


If We are substantively changing a piece of writing, a photo caption, a headline, a graphic, a video, or any other kind of content, We immediately post a correction outlining the justification for the change.


The text is rewritten and an explanation is added to the story when Our writing has accurate facts but the language We used to convey those facts is not as clear or precise as it should be. A clarification is also used to indicate when We missed a comment or answer that has since been included in the story or when new information has changed how We initially described an incident.

Editor’s remarks

If a correction creates a substantial ethical dilemma, it may also call into question the entire article’s content, in which case an editor’s note is required. This editor’s note will then explain the correction in question. The inclusion of an editor’s note in a story is authorized by a senior editor.

Policies for other corrections

Our community engagement staff can state in the comments that an error has been fixed when one is discovered by a reader and sent to the comment stream.

When We post inaccurate information on social networks, We update it there. If we are unable to change it, we retract the inaccurate information. We do not place blame on specific editors or reporters (e.g., “because of an editing fault” or “because of a reporting error”).

Removal Requests

Because it violates our editorial guidelines, we do not consider takedown requests. In the event that the subject disputes the accuracy of the report, we are willing to look into it and, if required, issue a correction.

When fairness requires an update or follow-up on Our prior reporting, We comply, evaluating whether further editorial action is necessary, but we do not take the story down as if it had never been written.

We only consider takedown requests for publicly available personal data where a person is actually in danger of being physically harmed as a result of the material’s presence.
