Blhsnews would like to notify you of the care and security measures we take to ensure the accuracy of Our information through Our fact-checking policy.
Objectivity in all of Our Content Every journalistic platform must prioritize audience trust above everything else. Accurate, fair, and balanced reporting is the basis for constructing and upholding the conviction.
We must keep working hard to ensure the highest acceptable correctness in all of Our Content.
Our definition of “due accuracy” states that accuracy must satisfy the necessary standard and be satisfactory overall. We also consider other aspects, such as the subject and type of the Content being presented, the audience’s expectations, etc., in our pursuit of adequate accuracy.
We strive to provide the most accurate account of 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. Nonetheless, there are different criteria for fact-checking information for soft and complex stories.
For instance, an article celebrating the accomplishments of an NGO would require different sources than a story about an investigation.
We adhere to the following recommendations to ensure our Content is accurate: Every broadcast we produce comes from a reliable source and is backed by data that can be independently verified.
When no direct sources are accessible, we must attribute the platform from where the news was obtained. We try to verify any assertions, allegations, or facts made by public figures or individuals we feel are acting for purposes other than merely reporting the truth of an event.
As a result, we qualify and disclaim any information, including any claims or allegations that we cannot support. Anuncios We have no doubts about the integrity of the data we offer.
Where it is reasonable to do so, we modify the Content if it is wrong and properly inform our viewers of the changes. We understand how vital our audiences are to have faith in us.
As a result, our intention is purposely to mislead anyone and to provide nest information devoid of factual editing or fabrication. Furthermore, when material factual inaccuracies are revealed, We publicly recognize them and take steps to fix them as soon as is reasonable and appropriate.
Incorporating a “Recommend A Correction” box at the end of every report we give and post on Our Website ensures everyone has an equal opportunity to report any errors or inconsistencies discovered there.
The website. Our journalists’ primary responsibilities are reporting, writing, and fact-checking news, information, and stories.
In reality, as part of a sophisticated internal fact-checking procedure, each of Our works undergoes a complete due diligence process before being examined by one or more of Our editors.
The seniority of editors who review stories before posting on the website varies and depends on several factors, including the difficulty and sensitivity of the subject matter and the deadline pressure. Anuncios Every person who an allegation might impact is contacted by us.
After that, we independently validate the pertinent and submitted information to produce the most accurate result.
Sources of Information for Our Content We adhere to the guidelines to source the information appropriately: Check all the data by consulting at least two references. When there is only one source, the source’s credibility is ensured by its ability to back up its claims.
Look for documentation evidence whenever possible rather than solely relying on human sources. When conducting a survey, we must detail the methods used to collect and examine the data.
We alert the audience as soon as possible about any discrepancies if there is a chance that Our data won’t give accurate facts. The idea is to acquire precise information immediately rather than publicizing the material and answering unanswered queries.
Always try to get information from or communicate with news sources in an on-the-record manner. 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, specify why it wasn’t named based on the situation. Share the source information with our editors so they can decide if the information is suitable for publication and how it might be utilized.
Both the editors and the reporters will benefit from this. Any unattributed quotes must reflect the conversation between the reporter and editor.
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 about making it clear if a source wishes that information be kept “off the record,” “on background,” or in another status since different people may have other definitions for these phrases.
Give readers a chance to comment on stories that might portray them negatively and tell them what we do if sources don’t respond.
Consciously seek sources that are strong and prominent and lack access to major public venues.
To prevent giving false public information, one should always consult a senior resource or the head of the newsroom at The Logical Indian if they cannot decide.
User-Generated Content By its very nature, user-generated material has issues. We don’t assume the accuracy of the information submitted to Us; 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 story’s outcome as opposed to an impartial observer.
We take steps to identify user-generated Content as such clearly. We also follow the following guidelines: Online information sources that seem reliable may not always be entirely correct.
It may be necessary to find out who controls the website and verify with a person or organization that the information relevant to them is accurate. Fact from hearsay is carefully differentiated.
This is particularly true, though not only for information on social media, where distortions may be deliberate or unintentional, but where mistakes or rumors can quickly spread through the audience worldwide. At the same time, corrections have a more challenging time maintaining the same momentum.
Further 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 we did not collect.
