At WNews, we thrive to be 100% accurate with the stories that we published for our users, readers and listeners. For every story that comes into WNewsNetwork, we vetted the story and its content as well as the source to make sure it’s 100% accurate.
WNewsNetwork is part of W-World Media which reports the news to the international community. The following is our fact-checking policy for news reported from WNews. This policy applies to our reporters, writers and officials plus third-party Authors/writers.
Reporters must be precise with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that words have power and act responsibly. In doing so, reporters must verify the information they gather. This includes identifying information such as names and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact-checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy. WNewsNetwork will use fact-checkers in certain circumstances it deems warranted.
Before any article is written, we ensure the information is new and accurate. We verify sources and always dig down to the original source (and reference material if applicable) before the writing process begins. Even if other outlets report an unsubstantiated piece of news as official confirmation, we require 100% confirmation to claim it’s actually confirmation. We do not post clickbait. Our headlines might be bold – but we don’t throw out broad statements just to sound bold. It has to be accurate and fact-checked. WNewsNetwork articles don’t just report the news, we provide industry-leading context that explains why that news is important to you.
On some big stories, we may require that the 3 different sources confirm the information on the story.
We, at WNews, make sure every new article has the latest info, the most accurate info, and all relevant details. When we are the original source, we follow basic journalism principles.
