Fact Check

Fact Checking Policy

Our Editorial team, before publishing the news content on our platform, confirms whether all the details and facts mentioned in the news article prepared by our journalists are true and correct.

Also we do our level best to include all the necessary information and sources to bring the true facts before the audience.

Sutharya Keralam commits to do its best to publish accurate information across all of its content. We take many steps to ensure accuracy:

  1. We investigate claims with skepticism; question assumptions; challenge conventional wisdom; confirm information with subject-matter experts; and seek to corroborate what sources tell us by talking with other informed people or consulting documents. History in it’s very nature is open to interpretation and we may on occasion generate discussion within the community as to accuracy. As such we will endeavor to list all sources whenever such controversy exists.
  2. We verify content, such as technical terms, stats, etc., against source documents or make clear who is providing the information.
  3. We may share relevant components of a story with a primary source or an outside expert to verify them.
  4. We stand by the information as accurate, and if it’s not, we will change it as quickly as possible and be transparent with our readers about the magnitude of the error.
  5. We guide our authors to ask the following questions when they double-check information in a quest for the truth.
    • How do you know?
    • How can you be sure?
    • Where is the evidence?
    • Who is the source, and how does the source know?
    • What is the supporting documentation?

We welcome feedback from our readers and sources regarding the information that we publish. Please email us at [email protected] if you think we have made an error.

Corrections Policy

Sutharya Keralam believes in transparency and honesty. Therefore, Sutharya Keralam will correct mistakes promptly. Fullness and freshness of information represent two inescapable values in the online journalism world, and Sutharya Keralam believes that accuracy is equally essential; we ensure expediency in making corrections when needed.

Sutharya Keralam is dedicated to informing its readers when it has made a mistake (however big or small), conveying the error’s severity, and providing the correct information as soon as the mistake is brought to attention.

When an error is detected within an article, Sutharya Keralam immediately works to find the correct information and clearly display the corrections wherever possible within the article. The corrections will include:

  1. The correct information.
  2. What was originally published that was incorrect.
  3. The date (and time, if available) when the change took place.
  4. The process to report errors from within articles is made easy to understand, by providing an email address and form to contact us at the beginning of each article.

Whenever errors cannot be amended within the body of an article’s content, corrections are displayed clearly in the last paragraph of the news content. Rather than remove completely the content containing a mistake, we provide clarification and admittance of our mistakes to preserve transparency.
