Fact Checking Policy

A) At thesamachar24.com, we are committed to doing our best to publish accurate information for providing accurate and reliable information to our readers. We take many steps to ensure accuracy: We investigate claims with scepticism; question assumptions; and challenge conventional wisdom.
Our Fact-Checking Policy is integral to maintaining the integrity of our content. Here’s how we approach the verification of information:

B) We are committed to upholding due accuracy in all its outputs. This dedication is essential to maintaining our reputation and fostering trust among our audiences. The term ‘due’ underscores that the accuracy must be sufficient and fitting for the given output, taking account of the subject and nature of the content and explicitly mention/underline any constraint that may influence that expectation.

c) We are committed to ensuring that all our outputs, in line with their content and nature, are thoroughly sourced, grounded in available evidence, and substantiated. We strive to be honest and open about what we don’t know and avoid unfounded speculation.

d) Our journalists adhere to a strict code of ethics, refraining from deliberate plagiarism, distortion of facts, or knowingly misrepresenting context, including visual information. This commitment underscores our dedication to maintaining the highest standards of integrity and accuracy in our reporting.

e) We seek independent verification from sources to confirm claims, information, allegation, especially those made by public officials or anyone with an agenda beyond merely reporting the truth. Claims, allegations, material facts and other content that cannot be corroborated is normally be attributed.

d) The Samachar 24 stands by the information it publishes and deems it be accurate. If proven otherwise, we promptly amend the news item or information.We do not knowingly and materially mislead our audiences. Our principles prohibit the distortion of facts or the presentation of fabricated material as truths, recognizing the potential harm to our audiences’ trust. In cases of significant factual errors, we openly acknowledge them and take swift, clear, and appropriate corrective actions.

e) We provide a fair opportunity for public the report any inaccuracies or errors in our reportage via ‘Suggest A Correction’ section, that appears at the end of every web-story that is published. This mechanism ensures an open channel for audience feedback, allowing us to address and rectify any potential discrepancies promptly and transparently.

f) The primary duty of our journalists is the meticulous reporting, writing, and fact-checking of stories. Each story undergoes a comprehensive review by one or more editors. The Samachar 24 has a multi-level fact-checking structure for stories that require due diligence. The seniority of editors who involved in reviewing a story before publication is varies on a range of factors, such as complexity, sensitivity, and the pressure of time.

Our Correction Policies:

While thesamachar24.com continually strives for excellence and accuracy, we resign the fact that we will occasionally make errors. When these errors are made, thesamachar24.com will take responsibility for correcting the error and will maintain a high level of transparency to be sure all parties are confident that the incorrect information does not spread.

The following are the steps each party needs to take to achieve the goals of accuracy, transparency and excellence:

If a reader spots an error, he or she should contact the editor-in-chief, Mr.umar Khan, immediately by email, phone, mail or in person.

Sub: Correction Needed

A correction is not officially submitted until the reader contacts the editor-in-chief directly. Corrections submitted to other thesamachar24.com staff members may not be addressed in a timely manner or at all.

In the case of corrections submitted via email or mail, it is essential to include the correction details, the issue date or number, and specify where the error was observed (e.g., in print, online). Additionally, the reader’s name, along with a reachable phone number or email address, must be provided for contact purposes. Readers should also include the correct information and a source for where they found that information, if applicable. For example, if a Student Senate vote tally was incorrect, please provide the minutes from that meeting.

The reader can expect a response from the editor-in-chief and may be contacted further if a clarification is noted or the editor needs more information. Please note that a correction submission is a guarantee that the error will be investigated but not a guarantee that a correction will be issued.


Once the editor-in-chief is made aware of an error, he or she will investigate the error using the information provided by the reader, meeting minutes, reporter’s recordings and any other sources of information available to him or her.

If the investigation confirms the presence of an error, the editor-in-chief will promptly issue a correction across all platforms where the inaccurate information was disseminated.

Corrections will be printed on page 2A in the next issue published. The correction will denote the issue, article and incorrect information along with the correction.

The article will be corrected and an editor’s note will be added to the bottom of the article noting what was incorrect and when the article was changed.

If the article was posted on Facebook, Twitter or any other online medium controlled by thesamachar24.com, a post will be made linking to the corrected article, noting the correction.

Once the correction is made, the editor-in-chief will contact the reader who submitted the correction and inform them the steps that were taken to correct the error.
