The Daily Gamecock's Corrections Policy

Should an error in reporting be found within The Daily Gamecock, in print or online, it is the responsibility of the staff to alert readers of the inconsistency and correct it. Staff members who become aware of an error must bring it to the attention of the managing editor and editor in chief. Corrections should be clearly written, as to not further muddle the information. These corrections are to be run in the next print edition of The Daily Gamecock and be posted on dailygamecock.com in the appropriate location. When handling a correction, the situation must be examined from all sides and verified with multiple sources. Should the situation merit a correction or clarification, the reporter who made the error is to contact the source to apologize for the misreporting. The editor in chief will hold the final say in whether or not a correction runs.
