Fact-Checking Policy

Basketball Network writers must be precise with the content they publish, from their words, titles, subtitles to links and images. Writers have to understand that their content and primarily words have power, and they need to act responsibly. In doing so, writers must verify the information they compile. This includes identifying all types of information, such as names and positions, but also other factual statements and accounts with accurate dates and quotes. Writers conduct their own fact-checking using their personal judgment guided by the ethics policy. Basketball Network will use independent fact-checkers in certain situations it deems warranted.
