Corrections policy

Mistakes are part of every profession. It is often said, you learn from mistakes. The one who learns from mistakes is the one who ultimately succeeds. Moreover, in journalism, mistakes do happen even after application of due diligence procedures. Straight Line acknowledges mistakes, loves rectifying them and does not hesitate to apologise if the mistake crosses the red line, which is always there for all the Journalists working with the Straight Line News Private Limited Group.

Straight Line Fact Check corrects errors as quickly as possible and with high levels of transparency. If the correction is straightforward, we mark the correction within 30 minutes of being pointed out.  However, if the correction involves further investigation or reaching out to people for their reactions, the correction may take up to 24 hours.

We value feedback from our readers and a request for a correction or an update in a story can also be sent to [email protected] or [email protected] Straight Line monitors its presence on social media platforms and welcomes feedback and criticism from our readers.

If there is a major correction or a substantive change in any news story, it is prominently marked as Correction” at the top, and we clearly indicate the change, with information on why the change was necessary. Corrections in typographical errors, misspellings, grammatical errors or minor changes which are not considered significant by editors are not usually noted.
