If we make a factual error we will correct it and note it on the original item. This will be clearly marked as "CORRECTION" at the bottom of the article, with the date of the modification and an explanation.
If the mistake is significant we will take down a story and leave an explanation.
Here is a list of corrections made:
October 30, 2018: We corrected the date of this crash. January, 25, 2019: This fact-check was rewritten to change the focus to the numerous locations where it was falsely claimed the original photo was taken. February 18, 2019: We edited this fact-check to clarify that while Nigeria's presidential elections were delayed until February 23, 2019, the governorship and state assembly elections were rescheduled for March 9, 2019. Feburary 26, 2019: We corrected a date in the ninth paragraph of this fact-check. March 7, 2019: We unpublished a fact-check from March 7, 2019 headlined: "No, these photos do not show recent military activity on the India-Pakistan border" because the posts being investigated did not explicitly state that the images were from the recent military activity. The photos in the posts were run underneath a caption stating the war was continuing, but the caption did not link them directly. March 11, 2019: The first paragraph of this article was corrected to say that the Boeing plane which crashed in Ethiopia was a 737 MAX 8 plane. March 12, 2019: This article was corrected to replace the term Arctic ice shelf with the scientifically correct term, Arctic sea ice, throughout. March 26, 2019: This post was removed as it did not meet AFP editorial standards on the selection and treatment of material to fact-check.
