Vera Files provides links to statements, press releases, transcripts, and videos of speeches and news conferences, where the time code is specified. This way it’s easier for our audience to find that exact statement highlighted in the story.
Multiple sources are encouraged, especially for statements or events with no audio or video recording. Vera Files has a three-source policy, meaning it should be clearly stated that at least three media networks used the same quote, or reported the event or incident.
At the end of each story, if applicable, other sources are listed, such as links to studies, documents, and other online resources. Sources used in infographics and videos are also prominently featured.
This policy is declared in “What you want to know about VERA Files Fact Check” in answer to the question "What are some of our do’s and don’ts when fact-checking?"
