Fact-Checking Policy

At MiserMan.com, we’re dedicated to providing accurate information. We go to great lengths to make sure our content is reliable and trustworthy. Here’s how we do it:

  1. Seeking Accuracy: We always aim for accuracy in everything we publish. This is vital for our reputation and for earning your trust. The level of accuracy depends on the subject and type of content, considering any limitations or challenges.
  2. Sourcing Information: Our content is well-researched, based on available evidence, and cross-checked. We’re upfront about what we know and avoid making things up.
  3. No Plagiarism or Distortion: Our journalists never copy someone else’s work on purpose, and they don’t twist the facts or context. This includes visuals, too.
  4. Verifying Claims: We make sure to confirm information, especially when it comes from public figures or sources with their own agenda. If we can’t verify something, we’ll mention that.
  5. Taking Responsibility: We stand by the accuracy of our information. If we’re wrong, we correct it quickly and transparently. We don’t intentionally mislead you, and we’re committed to building and keeping your trust.

Reporting Errors and Corrections

Here’s how you and we can work together to maintain accuracy and transparency:

For Readers:

  1. If you spot an error, contact our editor-in-chief, Emilee Wentland, right away via email at [email protected] with the subject line “Correction Needed.”
  2. Your correction should include the error, the publication date or number, where you saw the mistake (online or in print), your name, and your contact info (phone or email). If possible, provide the correct information and the source where you found it.
  3. You’ll get a response from the editor-in-chief and may be asked for more details if needed. Submitting a correction is a guarantee that we’ll investigate the error, but it doesn’t guarantee that a correction will be issued.

For MiserMan.com:

  1. When the editor-in-chief is alerted to an error, they will investigate using the info you provided and other available sources.
  2. If an error is confirmed, a correction will be issued in all the places where the incorrect information was published:
    • Print: Corrections will appear on page 2A in the next issue.
    • Online: The article will be corrected, and an editor’s note will be added to explain the error and the date of the correction.
    • Social Media: If the article was shared on platforms like Facebook or Twitter, we’ll post a link to the corrected article and note the correction.
  3. The editor-in-chief will get in touch with the reader who submitted the correction and explain the steps taken to fix the error.
