    • We never copy from others or make up things. Pictures and videos are shown as they are, without tricks.
  4. Checking Facts:
    • If we can’t confirm something, we tell you. And when someone important says something, we double-check it.
  5. Fixing Mistakes:
    • We stand by what we publish, but if we’re wrong, we fix it fast. Big mistakes are owned up to and corrected clearly.
  6. Listening to You:
    • We want to hear from you. If you see something off, tell us. There’s a way for you to let us know right on our website.
  7. Being Careful:
