Our content is accurate
Every journalistic platform must prioritize audience trust above everything else. The sole basis for constructing and upholding trust is accurate, fair, and balanced reporting. It is essential that We keep working hard to ensure the highest level of acceptable correctness in all of Our content.
Our definition of “due accuracy” states that accuracy must not only satisfy the necessary standard but also be satisfactory overall. We also consider other factors, such as the subject and type of material being provided, the audience’s expectations, etc., in our pursuit of acceptable accuracy.
We strive to provide the most accurate account that is backed by the news’s immediate stakeholders in every news item. We question assumptions, critically examine statements, and refute conventional wisdom. There will always be some areas of misunderstanding, despite our best efforts to resolve them.
However, there are different criteria for fact-checking information for both soft and hard stories. For instance, an article praising the accomplishments of an NGO would require different sources than one that was an investigation.
To guarantee the accuracy of Our material, we follow the advice provided below:
Every broadcast we produce comes from a reliable source and is backed by data that can be independently verified. If there are no direct sources for the information, we must attribute the news platform from which it was obtained.
We make an effort to verify any assertions made by public figures or by individuals we believe have a motivation for doing so beyond merely reporting the truth of an event. As a result, whenever we provide material that we are unable to independently verify, we disclaim it and make it clear that it is false.
We have no doubts about the veracity of the data we offer. When it is reasonable to do so, we modify the content if it is found to be wrong and make sure to properly inform our viewers of the changes.
We understand how important it is for our audiences to have faith in us. We take great care not to intentionally mislead anyone, change any information, or present false information as true. Furthermore, when material factual inaccuracies are revealed, We publicly recognize them and take steps to have them fixed as soon as is reasonable and in a way that is appropriate and transparent.
We include a “Suggest A Correction” box at the conclusion of every report we produce and publish on Our Website to ensure that everyone has an equal opportunity to report any errors or inconsistencies found there.
The main responsibilities of our journalists are to gather information, produce reports, and fact-check the news. Each of Our articles actually goes through a thorough fact-checking process as part of an internal procedure before being further assessed by one or more of Our editors. Every step of this process requires meticulous due diligence. The seniority of editors who review stories before they are posted on the internet varies and depends on a number of factors, including the difficulty and sensitivity of the subject matter and the pressure of deadlines. This is important to keep in mind.
Every person who might be impacted by an allegation is contacted by us. After that, we independently validate both the pertinent information and the information being provided in order to produce the most accurate result.
Information Sources for Our Content
We adhere to the guidelines given to appropriately source the information: Check each piece of information using at least two more sources. When there is only one source, the truthfulness of the source is ensured by the truthfulness of the claims made by the source.
Look for documentation evidence whenever possible rather than solely relying on human sources.
When conducting a survey, it is Our duty to detail the methods used to collect and examine the data. We alert the audience as soon as we can about any discrepancies if there is a chance that Our data won’t give accurate facts.
The idea is to acquire accurate information right away rather than making the material public first and then answering any unanswered queries.
Make an effort to always speak with or get information from news sources off the record. Create a method employing such sources to provide readers with as much information as you can about them, allowing them to assess the sources’ dependability. If an anonymous source is used, be sure to specify why it wasn’t named based on the situation.
Share the source’s data with Our editors and provide the resources necessary for editors and reporters to decide if the information is appropriate for use and how it should be utilized. The conversation between the reporter and editor must be reflected in any unattributed quotes.
Consult sources briefly to determine the best methods to use the information they supply, especially if they have little prior media contact experience. Make cautious to make it clear if a source wishes that information be kept “off the record,” “on background,” or in another status since different people may have different definitions for these phrases.
Give people a chance to comment on stories that might portray them negatively, and let readers know how we go about getting in touch with sources when we need their input.
Consciously seek sources that are not only strong and prominent but also lack access to major public venues.
To prevent giving the audience false information, one should always ask the opinion of a senior resource or the head of the newsroom at techrest if they are unable to make a decision on their own.
Content Created by Users
By its very nature, user-generated material has issues. We don’t assume the accuracy of the information submitted to Us and depending on how We intend to use it, we take reasonable steps to verify it. We exercise caution when deciding how to apply data supplied by a lobbyist or anybody else having a stake in the outcome of the story as opposed to an impartial observer. We take steps to clearly identify user-generated content as such. We also follow the following guidelines:
Online, information sources that seem reliable may not always be entirely correct. Finding out who is in control of the website and verifying with a person or organization that the information pertinent to them is accurate may be necessary.
Fact from hearsay is carefully differentiated. This is especially true, though not only, for content found on social media, where errors or rumors can spread quickly across a global audience and are more difficult to correct. These distortions might be deliberate or accidental.
More research may be necessary when data from a social media platform or other online source is being used to support a fact. We qualify and point out any information that was not collected by Us.
