Report an Error
San Eli News creates and edits our journalism in ways aimed at anticipating problem areas, reducing mistakes, and correcting them as quickly and transparently as we can. We maintain this online corrections page that makes it easy for you to report errors. We provide timely response, clear corrections, and prominent acknowledgment that a mistake was made and addressed. We credit the authors and creators of the various forms of journalism we publish. We apply appropriate scrutiny to work by staff and contributing writers to prevent plagiarism, intentional or otherwise. We do not intentionally mislead with words or images. We do not deliberately deceive as we gather information. If you see a mistake, please let us know.
We follow the Seven Principals for the Conduct of a Newspaper as put forth by Eugene Meyer, March 5, 1935:
The Seven Principles for the Conduct of a Newspaper
- The first mission of a newspaper is to tell the truth as nearly as the truth may be ascertained.
- The newspaper shall tell ALL the truth so far as it can learn it, concerning the important affairs of America and the world.
- As a disseminator of the news, the paper shall observe the decencies that are obligatory upon a private gentleman.
- What it prints shall be fit reading for the young as well as for the old.
- The newspaper’s duty is to its readers and to the public at large, and not to the private interests of its owners.
- In the pursuit of truth, the newspaper shall be prepared to make sacrifices of its material fortunes, if such course be necessary for the public good.
- The newspaper shall not be the ally of any special interest, but shall be fair and free and wholesome in its outlook on public affairs and public men.
Therefore, we ask you to please report any errors that you have encountered or any content that you feel may not be the whole truth and we will publish any and all corrections we discover in our reporting.
