The most important aspect of any journalistic platform is the trust of its audience. Trust can only be earned and maintained through accurate, fair, and balanced reporting. It is important that we remain committed to achieving maximum accuracy in all of our content.
Reporters must use precise words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand the power of words and act responsibly. In order to do so, reporters must verify the information they collect. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, as well as facts and accounts. Reporters use their own judgment to conduct fact-checking, guided by our ethics policy. Other members of the editorial staff may contribute additional research and changes to the writers’ work, depending on the nature and complexity of the topic, and the final product will pass through the hands of our editors. In certain circumstances, Empire Weekly will employ fact-checkers.
If we receive a claim about fact-checking on our website, we contact the source first for further elaboration and supporting information. We also contact individuals and organizations who may have additional information or relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as conduct research on relevant literature (news articles, scientific and medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, and statistical sources) that are relevant to the topic. We adhere to basic journalism principles when we are the original source.
