a) Expatsinkuwait.com is dedicated to publishing truthful information in all of its content, and it will make every effort to do so. We take several actions to guarantee accuracy: We scrutinize claims skeptically, raise doubts about presumptions, and refute received wisdom.
b) We pledge to ensure that every output is accurate to the required degree. This dedication is essential to maintaining our reputation and audiences’ trust. The word “due” implies that the accuracy must be sufficient and appropriate for the output, considering the topic and content’s nature, and clearly stating or emphasizing any limitations that might affect those expectations.
c) All of our output, according to its content and nature, needs to be properly sourced, supported by evidence and cross-checked. We make an effort to avoid irrational conjecture and to be forthright and honest about what we don’t know.
d) Our journalists never purposefully steal content or intentionally misrepresent context or facts, including visual data.
e) To verify claims, information, and allegations—especially those made by public officials or anyone with a purpose other than reporting the facts—we look for independent verification from sources. Normally, credit is given to claims, allegations, significant facts, and other content that cannot be verified.
d) The expatsinkuwait.com believes the material it posts to be accurate and stands by it. We promptly update the news item/information if proven incorrect. We don’t purposefully or significantly mislead our audiences. We don’t present made-up information as fact or falsify facts to damage our audiences’ confidence in our work. We promptly, clearly, and appropriately correct any significant factual errors that we become aware of.
e) We give the public a fair chance to report any inaccuracies or errors in our reporting by including a “Suggest A Correction” section after each published web story.
f) The main duties of our journalists are story reporting, story writing, and fact-checking. One or more editors may review a story before publication. A multi-level fact-checking structure is available in The expatsinkuwait.com for stories that demand careful investigation. A story’s seniority among editors who evaluate it before it is published depends on several variables, such as the story’s complexity, sensitivity, and deadline pressure.
