FACT CHECKING POLICY & REGULATION
Reporters must be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that words have power and act responsibly. In doing so, reporters must verify the information they gather. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy. The Herald will use fact checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
We are a member of IPSO, the biggest written content regulator in the UK. IPSO is a brand that is increasingly recognised and trusted by the public as a sign of professionally produced content and external accountability. We display the IPSO mark in our publications and on our websites as a sign of quality, trusted, regulated journalism.
