    • If necessary, we reach out to primary sources, experts, or individuals involved in the story to confirm facts and gather additional insights.
  2. Cross-Checking and Corroboration:
    • We cross-reference information from multiple sources to ensure its accuracy and reliability.
    • In cases where conflicting information arises, we make every effort to verify the facts through additional sources or by seeking expert opinions.
    • If there is uncertainty or ambiguity regarding a particular fact, we provide transparent disclosure and present all available perspectives.
