Our editorial standards includes our corrections policy: https://www.poynter.org/mediawise/
No one is perfect and mistakes will happen. MediaWise issues corrections with the appropriate transparency as quickly as possible if an error has occurred. Depending on the platform on which the fact check was originally published, corrections may be handled differently to address those platform differences:
Instagram Story: We will post a correction on the Instagram story, add it to the corresponding highlight and include text with the correction information in the related feed post (if there is one).
Instagram feed post: We will add text to the feed post caption with details of the correction.
IGTV: We will add text to the feed post caption with details of the correction.
Twitter: We will add a tweet to the thread of the original tweet. If the error was particularly egregious, we’ll also publish a new tweet linking to the tweet with the error.
Facebook: We will post a correction on our page and link to the story with the error, or if possible, edit the original post and note that the post has been updated.
YouTube: We will add a correction to the video description box and text in the video title at the end.
If the correction is debilitating to the story, we will consider removing it and issuing a correction in the relevant format in an attempt to reach the same audience who saw the initial story. These instances will be handled on a case-by-case basis and must be approved by the MediaWise Project Editor and Project Manager Katy Byron.
