Editorial Policy

INDIAFAKENEWS is committed to fact-checking in a fair, transparent and non-partisan manner. We strive for high editorial standards and follow the following guidelines:

Transparency: Indiafakenews explains in detail how the claim was busted. This is done in the interest of transparency and also serves an educational purpose, guiding readers on how to evaluate the claims they face in the future.

Nonpartisan approach: INDIAFAKENEWS has no political affiliations. We believe in fact-checking news from all ends of the political spectrum and apply the same standards to claims irrespective of who originate them. We call out fake news without fear or favour.

Evidence-backed: Facts are sacred to the fact-checker. Therefore, we aim to be accurate in our fact-checking, consulting multiple sources to ensure that fact-checks are supported by solid evidence. Depending on the nature of the fact-checking required, we use Internet tools such as reverse image search or source data from official sources. Where necessary, we also reach out to the person concerned to verify the claim. We do not cite anonymous sources.
