Our Fact Checking and Content Policy

NOTE: This policy was enacted on January 29, 2024. Articles written before January 29, 2024 may not have been fact checked unless otherwise noted.

In the world of digital content, it's crucial to ensure that the information we publish is accurate, reliable, and trustworthy. The Washington Gazette takes this responsibility seriously. To accomplish this, we utilize cutting-edge AI technology to meticulously fact check every article before it's published. This ensures that readers receive the most accurate and up-to-date information.

Fact checking is not just about verifying the truthfulness of the information; it's about upholding the integrity of the news and maintaining the trust of our readers. That is why we prioritize fact checking so highly. The Washington Gazette believes in transparency and accountability, and so we are committed to being as transparent as possible about our fact-checking process.

Before any article is published, it goes through rigorous analysis from Factiverse, a cutting-edge AI fact checking tool that scours the internet for articles from academic institutions, media outlets, government sources, and more and compares what it finds to the article content our writers have written.

Occasionally, sources of information will contradict each other. When there is no clear consensus of factual claims on an issue, We use Findsight and I Ask AI to find academic and published sources that cover the factual dispute. However, we realize Findsight and I Ask AI have a liberal bias by nature of the fact that most institutions are in a liberal information bubble. So when these sources do not present research from a diverse background of sources, The Washington Gazette attempts to locate any primary sources we can find on the subject and use our best judgement.

Once there are not any more discovered factually inaccurate claims, we publish the article.

Our commitment to fact checking extends beyond just checking the mere facts, however. The Washington Gazette strives to provide primary sources whenever possible. But, we understand that there are instances where secondary or tertiary sources might be necessary. In such cases, we do our best to ensure that these sources are credible and relevant to the topic at hand.

We value your feedback and welcome your input. If you come across any statements that you believe are factually inaccurate or have any concerns about the factual accuracy of our articles, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

While The Washington gazette uses advanced AI technology to help us provide factually accurate content, we also remain committed to human oversight and editorial judgment in line with this our aforeto described methods.

At The Washington Gazette, we take pride in maintaining our independence and integrity. We believe in the power of free speech and the importance of unbiased reporting. That's why we have chosen to operate without any type of partnership or affiliation that could potentially influence our editorial decisions.

We understand that in today's media landscape, many outlets are influenced by partnerships and affiliations. However, at The Washington Gazette, we stand firmly against such practices. We believe that journalism should be driven by the pursuit of truth, not by financial interests or corporate agendas.

Our commitment to transparency extends to our content as well. Every piece of content published on The Washington Gazette is 100% original. We do not allow our partners and affiliates to screen or approve our content. Instead, we rely on our team to produce high-quality, accurate, and unbiased news.

Furthermore, we do not engage in backroom deals where we are forced to publish content that aligns with a company's bottom line. Our writers and content creators are free to report on any topic, regardless of who might be affected by the coverage. We believe that this approach fosters trust and credibility among our readers.

To emphasize our commitment to transparency, here is a list of our current partners and affiliates:

At The Washington Gazette, we prioritize our readers' trust over financial gain. We strive to provide unbiased, fact-checked, original content that reflects our own opinions, not those of our partners and affiliates.

At The Washington Gazette, we embrace technology to enhance our ability to deliver timely and accurate news to our readers. One of the ways we do this is by leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) in our news publishing.

AI plays a crucial role in gathering and organizing news from various sources. It can sift through vast amounts of data quickly and accurately, identifying key pieces of information and condensing them into accurate summaries and explanations of topics. This allows our writers to focus on what truly matters, rather than getting lost in the day-to-day noise.

However, it's important to note that while AI assists in the news gathering process, every piece of content published by The Washington Gazette is thoroughly reviewed and guided by our editorial staff. The editorial team reviews and fact-checks the information provided by the AI, ensuring that it is presented in a way that is accurate, fair, and balanced.

All articles using AI have a statement at the bottom that reads "AI has contributed to the writing of this article" with a link linking back to this policy.

We are aware of the challenges posed by AI, including the potential for misinformation and hallucinations. To mitigate these risks, we have implemented rigorous fact-checking processes. All content, whether generated by humans or AI, undergoes the same meticulous fact-checking process. This ensures that our readers receive the most accurate and reliable news possible.

In conclusion, while we use AI to assist in our news publishing process, we remain committed to maintaining the highest standards of journalistic integrity. Every piece of content is thoroughly reviewed and fact-checked in the same way all human-made content would be to ensure accuracy and reliability.
