Fact-Checking and Corrections 

In a quest to ascertain the truth and accuracy of information, we corroborate with multiple sources, while questioning any assumptions. We also go on to investigate claims with skepticism.

We require our journalists to ask the following “who,” “what,” “where,” when,” “why” and “how” questions when cross-checking information in a quest for the truth and accuracy.

· How do you know?
· Who is the source, and how does the source know?
· How can you be sure?
. How reliable or credible, reputable or trustworthy is the source?
· Where is the evidence?
· What documentation supports the facts?

In the spirit of openness, if a piece of information is inaccurate, we will change it as quickly as possible and we’re always transparent with our readers about the scale of the error.

Here at Byliner.com, we regard the contents we publish as a ‘living document’ that must be updated from time to time and as events unfold. We ensure to the best of our abilities that contents are completely accurate upon publication. However, if a correction is required after the content has been published, we are transparent and will update the article if the new information adds to or corrects an aspect of the original information.
