Fact Checking Policy

At Taaza-time.com, we are dedicated to maintaining the highest standards of accuracy and integrity in all of our content. We undertake rigorous measures to ensure the veracity of the information we provide. Here’s how we uphold our commitment to accuracy:

  1. Scepticism and Inquiry: We approach all claims with scepticism, question assumptions, and challenge conventional wisdom to verify the accuracy of the information.
  2. Due Accuracy Commitment: Accuracy is fundamental to our reputation and the trust of our audience. We ensure that the accuracy of our content is adequate and appropriate, considering the subject and nature of the information.
  3. Well-Sourced and Evidence-Based: All our content is well-sourced, based on available evidence, and corroborated. We are transparent about what we know and avoid unfounded speculation.
  4. Plagiarism and Distortion: Our journalists never plagiarize or distort facts or context, including visual information knowingly.
  5. Independent Verification: We seek independent verification from reliable sources, especially for claims made by public officials or individuals with agendas beyond truth-telling. Unverifiable claims are attributed accordingly.
  6. Accountability for Accuracy: We stand by the accuracy of the information we publish. If proven otherwise, we promptly correct errors and strive to maintain transparency with our audience.
  7. Correction Policies: We provide a fair opportunity for the public to report inaccuracies or errors via the ‘Suggest A Correction’ section at the end of each web-story.
  8. Editorial Oversight: Our journalists’ primary responsibility includes reporting, writing, and fact-checking stories. Stories undergo review by one or more editors, with a multi-level fact-checking structure for thoroughness.

Correction Process:


  • If a reader identifies an error, they should contact the editor-in-chief directly via email at taazatime@gmail.com with the subject line “Correction Needed”.
  • Corrections should include the error, issue date, where it was seen, the reader’s name, contact information, correct information, and sources.
  • While correction submission guarantees investigation, it does not guarantee issuance of a correction.


  • Upon notification, the editor-in-chief investigates the error using available information.
  • If an error is confirmed, corrections are issued across all platforms:
    • Print: Corrections are printed on page 2A in the next issue, specifying the error and correction.
    • Website: The article is corrected with an editor’s note appended, indicating the error and correction.
    • Social Media: Corrections are posted linking to the corrected article.
  • The reader who submitted the correction is informed of the corrective actions taken.

We are committed to upholding the highest standards of accuracy and transparency in our reporting, and we appreciate the cooperation of our readers in helping us maintain these standards.
