[This policy is loosely based on the policy of The Washington Post.]
APR strives to provide quick, accurate and in-depth news. In all cases, we strive to respond quickly to errors we identify ourselves or those that are pointed out to us. We will always quickly correct an error of fact. When an error is identified, we will issue a correction by updating the body text of the report and by adding a footnote denoting that a correction or clarification has been made. The note will explain what was wrong and what has been corrected.
We only take down, unpublish or retract stories in the most serious cases of inaccuracy in which the entire story has been called into question. However, we may take down work that has been published unintentionally, in which case we aim to do so as quickly as possible.
