Fact-Checking: Precision in Reporting

At The Game Post, we have a strong commitment to providing our readers with accurate content. Our headlines are designed to be bold yet accurate while remaining faithful to the truth. Before we publish any article, we conduct extensive fact-checking to ensure that the information we provide is reliable, and we always take the time to verify our sources and trace information back to its roots.

Rumors, leaks, and insider reports – from Reddit, YouTube, social media, or industry journalists, are meticulously distinguished from confirmed information, ensuring that our audience receives the most reliable and relevant news.

Plagiarism Policy

We take a firm stance against plagiarism to uphold the integrity of our content and maintain the trust of our audience. Plagiarism undermines the essence of authentic journalism, and we are committed to producing original and unique articles, reviews, and opinions.

Our editorial team adheres to a rigorous process of proofreading and fact-checking, thorough research, and proper attribution to ensure that our content is 100% authentic and original. To reinforce our commitment to originality, we employ state-of-the-art plagiarism detection tools that help us scrutinize our content thoroughly.

Thorough Source Verification

Our reporting prioritizes originality and accuracy, and we aim to provide industry-leading context that helps our readers better understand the news.

Official Confirmation Protocols

As a media outlet, we understand the importance of verifying rumors or leaks online such as social media, Reddit, and YouTube. To ensure accuracy, we always attempt to contact company representatives or public relations for official comment.

User-Friendly Formatting and Structure

We make it our top priority to provide our audience with comprehensive and easily accessible content, especially in our guides and walkthroughs. Our user-friendly formatting is evident with the implementation of a Table of Contents that allows readers to seamlessly navigate through our content.

Corrections and Transparency

In the rare cases of errors in news and feature content, we take immediate action to issue clear and concise corrections within the article. We pride ourselves on our commitment to transparency, which aligns with our unwavering dedication to being a reliable and trustworthy source of information. We firmly believe in being accountable, precise, and authoritative in all of our content.

When we receive new information from a company or new information, we make sure to update our stories. To make it easy for readers to identify the latest changes, we add a clearly labeled “Update” section that appears in bold font (example: Update, January 12, 10:02 am PT). This is then followed by the “Original story” text, which is shown in italicized font to distinguish it from the updated content.
