Policy on Fact-Checking
Given the current age of misinformation, we have created a simple but effective Fact-checking Given the current state of misinformation, we have developed a simple but effective Fact-Checking Policy that we adhere to in order to provide our readers with the information they require.
Our Fact-Checking Policy is founded on the principles of independence, transparency, fairness, thorough reporting, and clear writing. We believe that citizens in a democratic country deserve accurate information, which is why we developed a Fact-Checking Policy.
How we chose a topic for fact-checking
There are a plethora of claims floating around the internet. As a result, it is impossible for a company to check every claim that comes from various sources. We only pay attention to the claims that we use in our news stories. We only publish claims that we can independently verify. We consider the following questions before checking a claim made by politicians, government officials, or other parties:
Is there any news in this claim? If so, we will look into verifying the facts. Otherwise, we ignore it.
Is this claim supported by credible evidence? We do not consider opinion pieces to be checked. We are aware that many claims are being made that do not come from credible sources.
Is the claim incorrect or misleading? We only verify the facts of a claim if we receive it from a credible source and it appears misleading or incorrect. If a claim does not appear to be incorrect or misleading, we do not consider it to be checked.
Is the claim vitally important? We do not examine a claim to see if it is normal. We do not investigate a claim that appears to be a slip of the tongue.
Is the claim something that others can share or pass on to a large population? We do not consider a claim to be checked if it appears to have no significance to a large number of people.
Is a claim written in a way that a typical person would read and wonder, “Is it true?” Such claims are subject to scrutiny.
We only consider claims made by political parties or political leaders. We also double-check the authorities in charge and the people in power.
How do we verify a claim
After selecting a claim, we investigate it and determine whether it is true, half or partially true, half or partially false, or false.
We believe that the speaker bears the burden of proving a claim, and we only consider a claim to be true, half or partially true, half or partially false, or false based on information available in the public domain at the time the statement or claim is made.
Our fact-check reporters investigate the selected claim before meeting with the assigning editor to discuss it further. When they reached an agreement on the research, they brought in two more editors to discuss the rating, and thus we arrive at a final rating.
We try to find answers to these questions during a different phase of the discussion:
Is the assertion true?
Is the claim open to additional interpretation?
Is there enough evidence to back up the speaker’s claim?
And how did we handle a specific claim in the past?
Policy on Ethics
As a news organization, we strictly adhere to all journalism principles in order to provide our readers with accurate information.
As a news and media organization, we strive to maintain our integrity, accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, and public accountability. To uphold these journalistic principles, our reporters and editors put their personal opinions aside.
We make every effort to avoid public political expression and public participation in the political process. We do not contribute to politics and do not run campaigns. We strongly oppose political rallies.
However, as citizens of a democratic country, we have the right to vote in elections. We believe it is our right, like any other citizen, to vote. However, we regard it as optional.
As part of our Ethics Policy, we strive to be open-minded in our duties. We try not to do anything.
We are always eager to admit our errors. Despite our best efforts, we recognize that mistakes are inevitable. However, we consider the quickest way to correct the errors.
Factual errors: If we make a factual error, we will act quickly to correct it. At the same time, we are thinking about including a note admitting the error and clearly describing the mistake and correction.
We also edit it as quickly as possible for typos, grammatical errors, and spelling mistakes. We correct typos, grammatical and spelling errors as soon as we become aware of them. In these cases, however, we do not consider including a note for our readers.
Updates: We always try to include as much information as possible in a report. After publishing a report and making it available to a large number of our readers, we frequently receive new information, comments, and claims. In that case, we update the stories with new information only if it does not change the story’s meaning. If we believe that new information will change the meaning of the main story, we will consider a different story rather than changing the one that has already been published.
Explanatory editor’s notes: We always strive to be clear and understandable to readers from various backgrounds and with varying levels of understanding senses. We frequently include an explanatory editor’s note to inform our readers about one or more topics.
Current office address- Molla Bari, 2nd floor, Baraiyarhat, Chittagong.
