At TaxiPoint we care about being clear and concise with words, headlines, and URLs and understand that words have the utmost power and act accordingly. Writers on TaxiPoint must verify the information they gather from trusted sources, highlight the source of the information and link back to the source where available at all times.
This includes identifying information such as names, locations, factual statements, and accounts related to the content. Writers do their own fact-checking using their own judgement and information under the light of our Ethics Policy. TaxiPoint is ready to and will use fact-checkers both online and within the editorial team in certain circumstances if need be. We are committed to non-partisanship, transparency of sources, transparency of funding, and being open to reasonable criticism and corrections in our organisation. We check the information with all related parties before publishing it online.
If we receive a claim regarding fact-checking on our website, we first contact the source of the claim for further elaboration and supporting information. We also contact individuals and organisations who would have more information about or have relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as researching relevant literature (news articles, books, interview transcripts, statistical sources, etc) that has bearing on the topic.
We prefer to use unbiased information and data sources viewed by our equals, as much as possible. We also alert our readers that information and data from sources, such as political advocacy organisations and sided parties, should be evaluated considerately.
