Policies and Standards

The Daily Press strives to produce a newspaper that is fair, accurate and free from bias. We strenuously avoid the use of unnamed sources except in cases where personal safety is involved. We fact check and seek out multiple sources.

We promptly correct significant errors brought to the attention of the editor.  Online stories are corrected immediately after an error has been found. Stories containing a material error will have a correction published in the next print edition.

To submit a correction, please email [email protected]
