Corrections Policy

Did we get something wrong?

  1. We always publish corrections at least as prominently as the original mistake was published.
  2. We are eager to make corrections quickly and candidly.
  3. Although we welcome letters to the editor or comments that are critical of our work, an aggrieved party need not have a letter to the editor published for us to correct a mistake. We will publish corrections on our own and in our own voice as soon as we are told about a mistake by anyone — our contributors, an uninvolved reader, or an aggrieved reader — and can confirm the correct information.
  4. Our corrections policy should not be mistake for a policy of accommodating readers who are simply unhappy about a story that has been published.
  5. Information about corrections or complaints should be directed to Phil Wolff (@evanwolf) or via DataPortability.org’s discussion group.
