Denver Post correction policy

The Wall Street Journal's correction policy is as follows: "Readers can alert The Wall Street Journal to any errors in news articles by emailing wsjcontact@wsj.com or by calling 888-410-2667."

News organizations correct their mistakes by doing more research after someone recognizing a flaw and telling them or by reading other sources and finding the difference in something they said then looking it up more. Like we discussed in class, it is very important to look up ANYTHING you are not a hundred percent certain about. It is bad for a journalists credibility if they are making mistakes that the general public could notice. The corrections from a newspaper like The Herald Dispatch or The Parthenon are probably highly different than corrections from The Wall Street Journal. For example, since The Wall Street Journal is generally considered a more "prestige" paper, the readers may notice things that the readers of The Herald Dispatch wouldn't. The hard copy of The Wall Street Journal that I currently have in hand is the weekend edition of August 1-2, 2015.

A couple of the corrections from the month of August are as follows:

"PepsiCo Inc.'s name was incorrectly given as Pepsico in a World News article Friday about a Venezuelan government takeover of warehouses used by major food companies."

"South Korea's central bank has cut interest rates once since the outbreak of Middle East respiratory syndrome in that country in May. A World News article Wednesday about the end of the outbreak incorrectly said that the central bank had cut rates twice."

The correction policy for the Washington Post can be found at this link:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/guidelines/corrections.html


The Washington Post obviously takes their corrections seriously, and are very transparent about their process. I chose this publication because of that transparency. It is very beneficial to have their corrections separated into different sections, because in today's media world, corrections will be different for whichever medium the publication is using.

I am now using the Friday edition of The Herald Dispatch for my project due to the small print on The Parthenon's PDF

The Boston Globe corrections policy says "The Globe welcomes information about errors that call for corrections. Information may be sent to comments@globe.com or left in a message at 617-929-8230."
This was a more brief and bland corrections policy than I thought the Globe would have.

The New York Daily News has a correction policy, but it is not clearly stated in their Terms of Service and states they are not responsible for making any corrections to the news they distribute.

Under the Terms of Service, there is section entitled "As-Is As-Available" section. The corrections policy is hidden within the second paragraph. The policy states, "The Daily News assumes no responsibility for any errors or omissions in the materials comprising the Daily News Services. The Daily News makes no commitment to update the information on the Daily News Services. No advice or information given by the Daily News or any other party on the Daily News Services shall create any warranty or liability. Further, the Daily News is not responsible for any content transmitted or posted to the Daily News Services by a third party. Any such third party content does not necessarily represent the opinions, beliefs, or positions of the Daily News."

Instead of clearly labeling the statement as a corrections policy, the Daily News titles it "As-Is, As-Available." Upon reading, however, the section can be interpreted as the corrections policy. A reader should have easy accession to information such as a corrections policy for a publication so they know the news they are reading is updated for any changes and/or corrections. This will allow readers to gain trust in the publications such as the Daily Mail because they will know the information they are provided is up to date and accurate.

In the policy, it states that the Daily News is not responsible for making changes to their articles. This can cause a problem for when fact errors are made. There will be no corrections made so the reader can have the right information. The Daily News should hold full responsibility for their content to provide the best possible interpretation of the news they are distributing. Without fixing these errors, the reader will not view the Daily News as a creditable publication.

The Denver Post's correction policy is clearly listed on the site, but it can be found when searching for "corrections" in the search bar. The policy states that they will "correct all errors that occur in its news columns.

In each of the corrections, it is explained what was incorrect in the article and explains what what have been said instead. They also say where the article was found so the readers know where they can where the error was.

Their process of correcting appears to be explaining where the error happened, what went wrong, say what it should have said and saying where the article can be found.

This policy shows that they do take responsibility to fixing their mistakes. They make themselves accessible by giving their number for the city desk in the policy.

Above is the link to the Chicago Tribune corrections policy. I believe that this is a paper that really cares about finding errors and correcting them immediately instead of trying to ignore the mistakes. You can see on the page in the link above that they are almost constantly posting corrections. It is almost daily. I am not familiar with other papers, but this seems like a lot of corrections for such a prestigious paper. I know there are circumstances when the information does change or is interpreted in a new way, but to have corrections almost daily? I feel that having this many corrections would hurt the credibility of the paper because the reporters are publishing mistakes almost daily. The Chicago Tribune has a corrections policy that shows they really care about the information that goes into the paper and will admit fault and correct their mistakes.

The above link is the corrections policy for The San Francisco Chronicle and the San Francisco Gate. The Chronicle and the SFGate both seem to pride themselves in promptness.
The policy is straightforward. Both publications accept corrections from readers and staff. Errors are typically corrected a.s.a.p. and those errors that are large enough are noted on archives.
The website does not seem to have that many corrections posted on it, so I believe that the staff of the publications go through stories with a fine-toothed comb almost.
