Fair, open, and impartial fact-checking are priorities for County Current. We adhere to the following principles and aim for high editorial standards:
County Current has no political allegiances. We support fact-checking stories from all political viewpoints and hold all assertions to the same standards, regardless of where they came from. Without fear or favor, we expose false information.
To a fact-checker, the truth is inviolable. As a result, we strive for accuracy in our fact-checking and use a variety of sources to make sure that our findings are supported by solid data. We employ online resources like reverse image searches or source material from reputable sources, depending on the type of fact-checking that is necessary. We also contact the appropriate party when necessary to confirm a claim. We never cite unnamed sources.
County Current provides a thorough explanation of how the assertion was refuted. This is done for transparency’s sake and also serves an instructional function by instructing readers on how to assess claims they may encounter in the future.
