Fact-Checking Policy

We committed to publishing accurate news/information/articles on our website. We take many steps to ensure accuracy. Our journalists’ primary responsibility is reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories. Stories are subject to review by one or more editors. We have a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence. The editor who reviews a story prior to publication varies on a range of factors, including complexity, sensitivity, and the pressure of time.

Our journalists never plagiarize deliberately or distort facts or context, including visual information knowingly. If proven otherwise, we change the news item/information as quickly as possible. We do not knowingly and materially mislead our audiences. We do not distort facts, or present invented material as facts, that can undermine our audiences’ trust in our content. We acknowledge serious factual errors and correct them quickly, clearly and appropriately.

We give high value to our readers and we believe that media is the 4th pillar of Democracy. That is why we never publish any article or news without checking the fact correctly in a number of ways. Generally, we publish articles that are directly reported by our reporters. And in the case of national and international news, we directly follow the mainstream media like ANI, Times of India, Hindustan Times, Zee News, News 18, ABP News. as well as give more value to the government website and government News source. For fact-checking any viral article, post, or video we use some steps listed below.

  1. Google reverse image search: Whenever we get any viral images or videos with suspects, we use it for the fact check. And to verify the post we use google reverse search. In this case, we check when & where the first time the image published.
  2. Use of search Engine: We use the headline or the article of the viral post and search it on different search engines like google, yahoo, Bing, and many more. And check the details if any Government website of mainstream news site published or not. 
  3. Use of Social Media: We continuously follow the social media pages of Government as well as the Government person, like Prime Minister Chief Minister, Mister or Spoke person.
  4. Reach to Direct Person: If any person named used on the post, we try to reach them directly via call, mail or direct meeting. Sometimes its help us to verify the news.

We Take Fact Checking, Clarity & Credibility Seriously

Reporters must be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that words have power and act responsibly. In doing so, reporters must verify the information they gather. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact-checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy. Sakalerbarta.Com will use fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
