fact checking policy


a) article19a.in is committed to doing its best to publish accurate information in all its content. We take several steps to ensure accuracy: We investigate claims with a grain of salt; Question assumptions; And challenge conventional wisdom. Received certifications with skills in fact checking laboratories and training with many national and international media agencies and organizations.


b) We are committed to achieving reasonable accuracy in all its outputs. This commitment is fundamental to our reputation and audience trust. The word ‘due’ means that the accuracy should be sufficient and appropriate for the output, taking into account the subject and nature of the content and clearly mentioning / outlining any constraints that may affect that expectation.


c) This means that all our output, consistent with its content and nature, must be well-sourced, based on available evidence, and verifiable. We strive to be honest and open about what we do not know and avoid unfounded speculation.


d) Our journalists never knowingly plagiarize or knowingly distort facts or context, including visual information.


e) We seek independent verification from sources to corroborate claims, information, allegations, especially those made by public officials or those with an agenda beyond simply reporting the truth. Claims, allegations, material facts, and other material that cannot be confirmed are typically attributed.

d) article19a.in stands by the information it publishes and believes it to be accurate. If proven otherwise, we change the news item/information as soon as possible. We do not knowingly and materially mislead our audiences. We do not distort facts, or present invented material as facts, which could undermine our audience’s confidence in our content. We acknowledge serious factual errors and correct them promptly, clearly and appropriately.


e) We provide a fair opportunity to the public to report any inaccuracies or errors in our reports through the ‘Suggest Corrections’ section appearing at the end of every web-story we publish.


f) The primary responsibilities of our journalists are reporting, writing and fact-checking stories. Stories are subject to review by one or more editors. article19a.in has a multi-tier fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence. The seniority of editors who review a story before publication varies on a number of factors, including complexity, sensitivity, and time pressure. We are also constantly striving to enhance every type of specialty and skill.
