Editorial Policy

KolkataJournal.com is committed to fact-checking in a fair, transparent, and non-partisan manner. We strive for high editorial standards and adhere to the following guidelines:

Nonpartisan Approach: KolkataJournal.com has no political affiliations. We believe in fact-checking news from all ends of the political spectrum and apply the same standards to claims irrespective of who originates them. We call out fake news without fear or favor.

Evidence-Backed: Facts are sacrosanct to a fact-checker. We, therefore, aim to be accurate in our fact-checking, consulting multiple sources to ensure that fact-checks are backed by sound evidence. Depending on the nature of the fact-check required, we use internet tools like reverse image search or source data from official sources. Where necessary, we also reach out to the relevant person to verify a claim. We do not quote anonymous sources.

Transparency: KolkataJournal.com explains in detail how the claim was debunked. This is done in the interest of transparency and it also serves an educational purpose, guiding the readers on how to evaluate claims which they may come across in the future.

If you have spotted an error you can contact us at [email protected] and we will work to resolve it as soon as possible.
