Editorial Policy for thealtweb.com
At thealtweb.com, we understand the difference between conveying information and describing what is happening in a country and how events outside of our borders affect them. We believe that context and point of view are crucial and therefore, our reporters and editors make a point of focusing on actual individuals, rather than just institutions. Every story has to convince readers to give it time because we live in such a busy society. If the news piece does not attempt to be entertaining or explain to the reader why they should care, people will click on another website, turn the page, or switch the channel.
The principles that guide our work stay the same despite the fact that our job is evolving. We must always act with unwavering fairness, integrity, and objectivity. We’re working with facts that can be verified and are supported by knowledgeable, reliable sources. With equal fervor, we look into every aspect of a story.
Accuracy is crucial, there is no way around that. It is imperative to fix errors as soon as they are identified. There should be no hesitation or sparseness in corrections to previously published or broadcast articles. They must be composed with the aim of making amends as fully and completely as possible.
It’s important what we do. In order to satisfy 24-hour deadlines, a news organization must put speed first. The key, though, is to always prioritize dependability over speed.
Good taste should always be kept in mind. It’s absolutely disgusting to learn some essential knowledge. That approach is not required.
