FACT CHECKING POLICY
Here @ Wegwan News we do our best to be perfectly clear and precise with words, headlines, and URLs and understand that information brings power and responsibility.
Writers for Wegwan News must verify the information they gather and write at all times.
This includes identifying information such as names, locations, factual statements, and accounts related to the content.
Writers do their own fact-checking using their own judgment and information under the light of our Ethics Policy.
Wegwan News can and will use fact-checkers both online and within the editorial team in certain circumstances if need be.
We are committed to non-partisanship, transparency of sources, transparency of funding, and being open to reasonable criticism and corrections in our organization. We check the information with all related parties before publishing it online.
If we receive a claim regarding fact-checking on our website, we first contact the source of the claim for further elaboration and supporting information. We also contact individuals and organizations who would have more information about or have relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as researching relevant literature (news articles, scientific and medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, statistical sources) that has bearing on the topic.
We do not fact-check opinions but we always will underline the difference between informative content and opinion content.
If we believe we should fact-check or otherwise correct information on our website please report it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to investigate every claim.
