All information used in The Carouser Magazine is fact-checked thoroughly before publication. The Carmax-com reporters, writers, and editors are all responsible for checking each story’s facts before publication.
Carmax-com uses a multi-stage process to vet its sources for reliability. At each stage, from brainstorming to writing to drafting to previewing, we make sure our facts are straight. Individual checks are made by reporters, copywriters, copyeditors, and senior editors.
The journalists at The Carouser Magazine are committed to providing you with coverage of the news that is accurate, thorough, and non-biased. Articles and news stories undergo rigorous editing and fact-checking before being published online. If an error did make it into the printed version of the article, it was not included on purpose.
Whenever a mistake is pointed out to us, we at The Carouser Magazine are quick to rectify it and make the necessary changes to the appropriate online resources. It is important to us that our readers understand when an error has been made and what should be read in its place, so we publish an editor’s note or correction whenever one is necessary.
Revising Existing Material
The needs of contemporary readers in the digital age are taken into account when revising previously published works. Given that the inclusion of a timestamp next to each revision makes it obvious that the article is part of a developing story, we don’t feel it’s necessary to add any notations to each instance of a revision. However, a message is only published when absolutely necessary. In extreme cases, an editor’s note or correction will be included to clarify the situation.
We will publish a correction explaining the error as soon as possible if a major mistake is found in a published story, headline, photo caption, graphic, video, or other content.
If the information in our reporting is correct but the wording isn’t as clear or precise as it should be, we will update the piece and provide an explanation.
We may also use clarifications to explain what happened or why we left out a response or comment that ended up being important to the story.
When a retraction or clarification casts doubt on the article’s main claims or raises significant ethical problems, we publish an editor’s note outlining the situation in detail. Only with approval from the managing editor will an editor’s note be published.
Additional correction policies:
Different social media platforms have different policies for editing posts online.
Readers can correct any errors they find in the comments section, and we’ll update the discussion thread to reflect the changes.
Reporters and editors will not be blamed in any way. Incorrect information from a trusted source or problems with the original publication will be noted.
