Correction Policy

The Asian Tribune always tries to provide accurate information to its audience. However, in journalism, mistakes can and do happen even after the application of due diligence procedures. In these circumstances, The Asian Tribune does not hesitate to acknowledge the error.

After checking the facts correctly, the target of The Asian Tribune is to tell its readers, as quickly as possible, what was wrong and what is correct. We tried to make the thing very clear to all of our audience as anyone would be able to understand how and why that mistake has been corrected.

The Asian Tribune Fact Check corrects errors as quickly as possible and with high levels of transparency. If the correction is straightforward, we mark the correction within 24 hours of being pointed out. But if the correction involves the further investigation or reaching out to people for their reactions, the correction may take up to 72 hours. We value feedback from our readers, which can be posted in the comments section at the end of every story, video, or post. A request for a correction or an update in a story can also be sent to [email protected].

The Asian Tribune also monitors its large presence on social media platforms and welcomes feedback and criticism from our readers.

If there is a major correction or a substantive change that modifies the rating of a news story, it is prominently marked as “Correction” at the top, and we indicate the change, with information on why the change was necessary. This provides a clear, transparent history to every correction.

If a new fact comes to light after a story is published, information that adds substantial new layers or angles but does not alter the rating, it is marked as “Updated” at the end of the article.

Corrections in typographical errors, misspellings, grammatical errors, or minor changes which are not considered significant by editors are not usually noted.
