Fact Checking Policy
Facts are the lifeblood of our media outlet.
Yellowhammer strives to deliver content based in fact and edifying for the consumers of our content. Creating trustworthy content is essential to the duties we owe our consumers. We believe that words have power and our contributors are held to a standard to act responsibly. Our team is required to be precise with their words, headlines, and linked URLs.
All content contributors must verify the information they gather and publish under their byline. This includes identifying information such as names, locations and positions, but also includes factual statements and accounts.
Each contributor conducts their own fact checking using their own judgment guided by our editorial team and ethics policy. Yellowhammer News will use outside, independent editors and fact checkers in circumstances it deems warranted.
