The Lansing Journal’s Corrections policy

LANSING, Ill. (January 4, 2024) – Over the years The Lansing Journal has developed a number of policies that are published as pages on our website. As a way to ensure our readers are aware of the policies, we plan to publish each of these pages as an article that will be delivered in the Daily News.

The Lansing Journal believes communication should be straightforward and concise. We try not to get embroiled in legalese, red tape, or complicated forms. All our policies contain the necessary legal language, but we hope they also are helpful and clear guides to the way we conduct business.

Corrections policy

The Lansing Journal works hard to ensure that the information we publish is accurate, and we welcome input from our readers letting us know when we’ve made a mistake. Our corrections policy is that we acknowledge our mistakes in a way that gives prominence to the corrected information. Because our publication is primarily digital, it is easy to make corrections to published articles, and we recognize that it is important to note when this has happened. In most cases we simply include an italicized note within the text, indicating what was wrong and how it has been corrected.

If an error is found by a reader and posted in a comment on the story, The Lansing Journal will make the correction and also indicate in the comments that the correction has been made.
