Fact-checking

ToddStarnes.com is committed to excellence in journalism. Reporters must be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. 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. Information obtained through social media pages goes through a strict vetting process before publication. ToddStarnes.com will use outside fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
