- Truth and Accuracy
NaijaTabloid will continually strive to ensure that all published posts are accurate. We will provide all available verifiable facts and also enforce that our reporters are as accurate as possible. Getting facts from verifiable sources is the cardinal principle of our operations.
Our reporters do not take sides nor favor any news item be it formally or informally as a result of personal interest. They are all trained to report news with independent voice. NaijaTabloid ensures independent fact-checking by other employees or actors is always involved in the publication process.
- Fairness and Impartiality
Most stories have at least two sides. While there is no obligation to present every side in every piece, stories are balanced as we know that impartial reporting builds trust and confidence.
Some of our publications or broadcasts may be offensive to some, but be rest assured that Naijatabloid is aware of the impact of its words and images on the lives of others. Private persons have privacy rights that must be balanced against the public interest in reporting information about them.
A sure sign of professionalism and responsible journalism is the ability to hold oneself accountable. Corrections are published when errors are discovered. NaijaTabloid listens to the concerns of its audience.
