Fact Checking Policy

The journalists and writers that work with Thomas Lineweaver 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. Our journalists and writers conduct their own fact checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy. The team will use fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
