Fact Checking Policy

At Karni Times, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of accuracy and reliability in our reporting. Our fact-checking process is integral to ensuring the credibility of the information we publish. This policy outlines our approach to fact-checking and our commitment to providing our readers with verified, trustworthy content.

1. Principles of Fact-Checking

  • Accuracy: We prioritize accuracy in all aspects of our reporting, from gathering information to verifying sources and claims.
  • Independence: Our fact-checking process is independent of any external influence or bias. We strive to present information objectively and without undue influence from any individual or organization.
  • Transparency: We are transparent about our fact-checking methods and sources, providing readers with insight into how we verify information.

2. Fact-Checking Process

  • Initial Verification: Our journalists rigorously verify the accuracy of information before publishing any article. This includes cross-referencing claims with credible sources, conducting interviews, and consulting experts when necessary.
  • Multiple Source Verification: We corroborate information from multiple independent and reliable sources to ensure its accuracy and mitigate the risk of misinformation.
  • Expert Consultation: When dealing with complex or specialized topics, we consult subject matter experts to verify information and provide context.
  • Timeliness: While we prioritize accuracy, we also understand the importance of timely reporting. However, we never sacrifice accuracy for speed and ensure that all information is thoroughly fact-checked before publication.

3. Corrections and Updates

In the event that errors are identified after publication, we promptly correct them following our Corrections Policy. Additionally, if new information comes to light that requires updates or revisions to a previously published article, we provide transparent updates to ensure our readers have access to the most accurate information available.
