Our staff is formed by independent journalists with no relation at all with any political party, private interest or advocacy organization. We are extremely careful with the content we share through the social networks of newtral. We don’t support any political or activist movement, we don’t retweet organized or biased campaigns, crowdfundings, or so. Even if these are not supported by political parties directly. We don’t do activism. We don’t defend ideologies. We are nonpartisan journalists. This is a extremely basic requirement for been part of the fact-checking team.
All of our factcheckers are independent professionals. We check their profiles so we can guarantee they are not part of any group of interest or lobby. That’s the way we assure there is no possible collusion of interest or personal issues doing factchecking and, most important of all, selecting the claims.
Our main goal is to serve the audience with an honest and committed journalism, based on the public interest and the criteria of what is NEWS. The Head of the Team is responsible for ensuring that no member of newtral staff violates this non-partisan policy. If that happens, we will take action immediately. These measures includes removing him from the fact-checking team.
