Through our Corrections Policy, Creative Content Independent Media intends to inform you of the steps we take to rectify any inaccuracies found on our website. As a responsible media outlet, we recognize our obligation to our readers and are committed to promptly correcting any errors and providing subsequent notification of the correction.
At Creative Content Independent Media, our aim is to provide our audience with precise and comprehensive news reports, utilizing all the information available at the time of reporting. If we come across any errors in the content published on our website, we strive to rectify them promptly and make the necessary corrections.
As a digital platform, we use our social media handles to publish corrections or share an editor’s note outlining the details of the error and the corrective measures taken. In situations where a significant mistake has been made that could result in the dissemination of false information, we promptly apologize to our readers.
Updating a Report
We have a standard procedure to add notes to stories in the event of updates. It’s crucial for us to use a correction, clarification, or editor’s note to notify readers whenever we make significant corrections or include comments and updates from stakeholders. If any errors arise during our fact-check process (which adheres to our Fact-Check Policy outlined in the “Fact-Check Policy” document), we promptly update the article and indicate the correction at the top of the article in bold “[Correction: updated Info…]” with an explanation of the correction. Additionally, we encourage our community members to send any corrections to [email protected], and we provide an option for readers to suggest corrections at the bottom of every article.
Whenever we make significant corrections to an article, photo caption, headline, graphic, video, or any other material, we immediately publish a correction that clarifies the reason for the modification.
If the language used to convey the facts in our journalism is not sufficiently clear or detailed, we revise it and add clarification to the story. Additionally, a clarification is included if we neglected to seek a comment or response initially, but have since added it to the story, or if new reporting has altered our understanding of an event. The factual accuracy of our journalism remains unchanged.
If a correction challenges the validity of an entire article or presents a significant ethical dilemma, it may be necessary to include an editor’s note that explains the problem. The decision to add an editor’s note to a story is typically made by a senior editor.
Other Corrections Policies
If a reader identifies an error and shares it in the comment section, our community engagement team can acknowledge the correction through comments. When we publish inaccurate information on social media, we make sure to rectify it on the same platform. In case we are unable to modify it, we retract the erroneous information. Additionally, we avoid assigning responsibility to any particular reporter or editor by using phrases like “because of a reporting error” or “because of an editing error.”
In case you think that a story we have published contains errors, kindly get in touch with our editorial team through the ‘Suggest A Correction’ form or alternatively, you can send us an email at [email protected].
Our editorial policy does not allow us to comply with take-down requests. However, if the subject believes that the story contains inaccuracies, we will conduct an investigation and potentially issue a correction. If there is a need for an update or follow-up on our previous coverage to maintain fairness, we will take appropriate editorial action, but we will not remove the article as if it never existed.
We only consider takedown requests for publicly available personal data if the individual in question faces physical harm due to the material’s existence.
