Corrections Policy & Practice
If we verify we have made a mistake, whether in an article or headline or photo caption or otherwise, we’re committed to publishing a correction at our soonest opportunity. If there is an substantial correction online, we publish a correction and explain the change at the end of the article.
When our coverage is accurate but we are not clear or unintentionally misleading, or fall short in any similar fashion, we commit to publishing a clarification at our soonest opportunity.
A serious correction that calls into question our broader decision making might require a special editor’s note.
If we publish incorrect information on social media, we must correct it on that specific platform.
