Sources

Vishvas News is one of the top digital fact-check platforms in the country. We choose our sources very carefully as their authenticity impacts our credibility.

At the first step, we verify the source of the information or news. Once a claim is established, we consider it the most important step to find reliable sources of evidence to check the claim. We rely on multiple sources to write our fact checks.  If we are unable to verify it, we do not publish the fact-check.

The news source could be newspaper articles, news websites, Youtube links of news shows, tweets, Facebook pages etc. In the age of Internet, some people pass off other organisations’ coverage as their own facts. We, therefore, take this as our responsibility to only serve the information that is verified and authentic. The source is given due credit for news published on our website. For instance – ANI/PTI/IANS etc. The image source is also given due credit. For instance – Getty Images/Image Bazaar or File Photo. Every source we refer to is hyperlinked or attributed to in the story.

All our stories are accompanied by screenshots and embedded URLs to support our fact-check. This also helps readers to replicate our fact-check at their end.

We also use old-school journalistic skills and contact primary sources and experts to comment on articles directly and to indicate whether the facts underlying the reasoning are consistent and up-to-date. That way, readers can hear directly from sources who have actual knowledge and expertise on the subject at hand. The names and designations of the sources are also clearly mentioned in the story.

We are sensitive to the fact that different people have diverse viewpoints. If somebody has denied any allegation, then this point is also included in the article. It is essential to make the effort to ensure that all reporting is impartial. The sole aim of Vishvas News is to ensure that consistent and unbiased news is published.

We ensure that data used in charts and infographics is accurate. We check the data (numbers) carefully so that our readers get the correct information. While covering political statements, we check the same at all possible levels. It is our moral responsibility to provide our readers and followers full and complete news.
