Our team at The Millennial Source (TMS) tries our very best to report details and facts thoroughly and accurately 100% of the time. But mistakes can make their way through our filters. When we’re wrong, we say so as soon as possible.
Our primary goal is to be a reliable and transparent resource for our readers. To make sure our reporting is accurate, we send all our news stories through multiple rounds of fact-checking. We will always confirm details with the original source or several other secondary sources when the firsthand source isn’t available. In the case of exclusives, we clearly and explicitly note the source.
With that, if a mistake is made, we will correct this as soon as possible while also letting our readers know about the mistake and any corrections or edits that were made to our published content.
All corrections, with the exception of punctuation or typos that don’t change the meaning of the story, will be noted. For example, in the case of an errant comma or missing period, we will adjust this without noting the correction.
Published articles on the TMS website will be overwritten and updated. For social media posts, we’ll note the correction in the caption in most cases unless the mistake detracts from the story. In this case, we’ll remove the post, correct the information and republish the post.
Any correction made will be noted as an editor’s note at the bottom of any published articles on our website. We will also include editor corrections in the caption of any published social media posts that contain a mistake or have been corrected and republished.
We do ask that any resources using our stories also carry notices of corrections made as needed.
Unfortunately, due to the fact that our newsletters are sent out directly via email, we are unable to correct already-emailed newsletters that have arrived in the reader’s inbox. Because of this, we ask that you double-check the online version of the newsletter for the most updated version if there’s any question about a detail we’ve reported.
A correction is always labeled as such. We don’t use euphemisms such as “minor changes,” or “edits.”
If a reader comes across a mistake or inaccuracy while reading our content, they can email our editors directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to alert us if we haven’t already caught it.
