Karnataka Jyothy holds its journalists responsible for reporting, writing, and fact-checking news, information, and stories. The platform has a robust internal fact-checking procedure where every piece of information goes through thorough due diligence and is reviewed by one or more editors. The seniority of the editors who undertake review depends on various factors such as the complexity and sensitivity of the issue and time pressure.
At Karnataka Jyothy, we take great care in sourcing information for our content. We understand the importance of accuracy and strive to verify every piece of information with at least two sources. In cases where we have only one source, we ensure that the credibility of the source is corroborated with what they are saying. Additionally, we look for documentary evidence wherever possible instead of solely relying on human sources.
When conducting surveys, we take it upon ourselves to provide information on how the data was collected and how it was interpreted. In cases where the data may not lead to accurate information, we make sure to convey the inconsistencies to our audience at the earliest possible time.
Our aim and intent are to obtain accurate information at the first instance, rather than rushing to publish news and subsequently addressing any doubts. We always strive to take and talk on record with stakeholders of the information or news to ensure the accuracy of our content.
We also understand that there may be circumstances where anonymous sources are necessary, and we work with such sources to provide readers with as much information as possible about them so that they can assess the reliability of the sources.
In summary, we ensure that all our content is sourced and verified accurately, and we take every measure possible to provide our readers with the most accurate and trustworthy information.
At The Logical Indian, we recognize the challenges that come with user-generated content. While we welcome our readers’ contributions, we do not automatically assume that the material shared with us is accurate, and we take steps to verify the veracity of such content, depending on how we plan to use it.
To ensure that we maintain the highest standards of accuracy, we follow the given guidelines when dealing with user-generated content:
- We clearly identify all user-generated content as such. We ensure that readers are aware that the content they are viewing has been submitted by a member of the public, and we take care to distinguish it from content generated by our journalists.
- We take steps to verify the accuracy of user-generated content before we publish it. Depending on the nature of the content, we may check it against other sources or seek confirmation from the original source.
- We are mindful of how we use information supplied by members of lobby groups or anyone with a vested interest in the story, rather than a disinterested bystander. We take care to ensure that our reporting is fair and impartial, and we avoid any perception of bias or conflict of interest.
- We provide clear guidelines for users who wish to submit content to us. These guidelines outline our expectations for accuracy, fairness, and impartiality, and provide instructions on how to submit content to us.
- We monitor user-generated content closely and take action if necessary. If we become aware of any content that violates our guidelines or our values, we remove it immediately and take steps to prevent its reoccurrence.
At The Logical Indian, we believe that user-generated content has the potential to enrich our reporting and provide valuable insights into the world around us. By following these guidelines, we aim to ensure that the user-generated content we publish is accurate, impartial, and adds value to our reporting.
We recognize that sources of information available on the internet may not always be reliable, and as such, we take steps to verify the credibility of such sources before using their material. We thoroughly check who is running the website and, if necessary, confirm the information with an individual or organization to ensure that the material is genuine and accurate.
It is essential to distinguish fact from rumor, and we make sure to do so in our reporting. We understand that misinformation can spread quickly on social media, and corrections may not have the same impact as the original rumor.

We aim to call out any false information that we come across and qualify it as such. We are committed to providing accurate and trustworthy information to our audience, and we take every precaution to ensure that the content we publish is reliable and factual.
