Editorial Accuracy and Correction Policy – Glink News
At Glink News, we are dedicated to upholding the highest standards of accuracy and transparency in our journalism. We strive to provide our readers with reliable and well-sourced information. Here is an overview of our editorial accuracy and correction policy:
Commitment to Accuracy
a) Skepticism and Rigorous Investigation: We are committed to publishing accurate information in all our content. To achieve this, we approach claims with skepticism, question assumptions, and challenge conventional wisdom. Our dedication to accuracy is paramount.
b) Due Accuracy: We aim to achieve due accuracy in all our content. This commitment is essential for maintaining our reputation and the trust of our readers. “Due” means that accuracy is appropriate and suitable for the content, taking into account the subject and nature of the material, while also acknowledging any constraints that may affect accuracy.
c) Well-Sourced and Evidence-Based: All our content, as appropriate to its nature, must be well-sourced, based on available evidence, and corroborated. We are committed to honesty and transparency about what we do not know and avoid engaging in unfounded speculation.
d) No Plagiarism or Distortion: Our journalists never intentionally plagiarize or distort facts or context, including visual information.
e) Independent Verification: We seek independent verification from sources to confirm claims, information, and allegations, especially those made by public officials or individuals with agendas that go beyond reporting the truth. Claims, allegations, material facts, or other content that cannot be corroborated are normally attributed as such.
Our commitment to accuracy extends to promptly addressing and correcting any errors that may occur in our content. Here’s how we handle corrections:
Readers: If a reader identifies an error, they should contact our Editor-in-Chief, [Mukesh Kumar], immediately via email at [email@example.com].
Email Subject: Correction Needed
Please note that a correction is officially submitted when the reader contacts the Editor-in-Chief directly. Corrections submitted to other Glink News staff members may not be addressed in a timely manner or at all.
Correction submissions should include the following information:
- The correction needed.
- The issue date or number.
- Where the error was observed (in print, online, etc.).
- The reader’s name.
- A phone number or email address for contact.
- Correct information and a source, if applicable.
Glink News: Upon receiving a correction report, our Editor-in-Chief will investigate the error using the provided information, meeting minutes, reporter’s recordings, and other available sources.
If an error is confirmed, the Editor-in-Chief will issue a correction in the following ways:
Print: Corrections will be published on a dedicated corrections page in the next issue, denoting the issue, article, incorrect information, and the correction.
Online: The online article will be corrected, and an editor’s note will be added at the bottom of the article, indicating the nature of the error and when it was corrected.
Social Media: If the article was shared on social media, we will post a correction, linking to the corrected article and noting the correction.
After the correction is made, the Editor-in-Chief will contact the reader who submitted the correction to inform them of the steps taken to address the error.
At Glink News, we are committed to accountability and transparency in our reporting. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us maintain the highest standards of accuracy and integrity in our journalism.
