Correction Policy

A clear and concise correction policy is fundamental to the day-to-day operation of every professional newsroom.

Gephardt Daily’s correction policy is modeled on guidelines set forth in the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics.

  • Any error, regardless of magnitude is to be corrected immediately upon discovery.
  • All promotional elements appearing on social media will be amended to reflect a story update and correction.
  • Corrected articles will be republished with an ‘update’ notification in the story’s headline.
  • Revised articles will be accompanied with a top-line notification the story has been updated and corrected.
  • An additional correction notice clarifying the exact nature of the revision appears below the updated article with an accompanying statement.
