Ethical Principles

In furtherance of Our intent expressed above and Our pursuit to be the most reliable platform through which people get news and information on issues that matter the most, We have adopted the following principles: 

Be a neutral platform that facilitates dialogue and enables people from different backgrounds and political inclinations to come together, discuss, and solve issues that matter most. 

Present the most accurate important information available at the time We are reporting on a particular issue.  

Credit source wherever needed or applicable. 

Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and prohibited. Strive for balanced, unbiased, and logical opinions on issues.  

Maintain a clear distinction between business interests and editorial decision-making. In no way can the business interest take over editorial decision-making. 

Give accurate information instead of breaking the news. We will wait before sharing if enough information is not available and not speculate. 

Include diverse voices in the story to make it fair and balanced. Issue a public apology in case of an error and rectify the error. 

Publicize or mention at the outset if a story is not from an editorial and is an advertisement/advertorial. 

Remain strong and resolute in the wake of pressure from people in power. Stand with the editorial in case of any legal dispute and in case of harassment.


Crichunter would like to familiarise you with Our Editorial Policy. This Policy outlines Our mission and the ethical and editorial standards We uphold including the way We distinguish Our content the kind of language We permit and deploy, Our Public Purpose, and our Editorial Mission. 

Crichunter is a public-spirited digital media platform providing news and editorials on issues that We believe matter to society at large and deserve the attention of a rational populace. Closely aligned with the Ethical Principles outlined in Our Code of Ethics Our Public Purposes and Editorial Mission is to: 

Educate the multitude through Our content and stories by establishing the truth as closely as it can be ascertained; 

facilitate a healthy, fair, balanced, and meaningful exchange of diverse ideas and perspectives; 

Spearhead or support initiatives to raise voices and bring about tangible differences on issues of vulnerable and needy people; 

Be an engine of change in society, driven by knowledge and integrity; and present and highlight stories of people across the world and, particularly, from India, who drive change through selfless deeds and inspire others in being the change or being part of the change. 

Accuracy, updating, and error correction Please refer to Our Corrections Policy. 


A conflict of interest is a situation, whether potential or actual, where competing interests or loyalties can potentially inappropriately influence a decision or activity at Crichunter and/or cause detriment to Crichunter or its audience. Therefore, to avoid this scenario, 

Our employees: 

are expected to manage personal finances and professional engagements in a manner consistent with Crichunter’s Code of Conduct and internal Employees’ Policies; do not take part in the creation of advertorial content; do not accept paid trips or gifts (other than souvenirs of a nominal value) that might influence their reportage. The one exception to this rule is for such travel that involves the trip itself being reviewed and, in the ordinary course, would be too expensive for Us to cover otherwise. Only for such cases, the fact that the trip was paid for shall be disclosed on the same page as the reportage; may accept travel costs and/or speaking fees for events such as conferences, where such acceptance does not pose a conflict of interest. If and when the employee writes anything in relation to the event, the fact that such costs and or fees were accepted shall be disclosed on the same page as the reportage. 

Distinguishing the content curated by Crichunter

The content curated by Crichunter is housed broadly under two categories – news-oriented (news reportage) and views-oriented (editorial or “Op-Eds”). Both types are entirely independent of each other. This independence is pivotal and is intended to serve the reader, who is entitled to access both a factually correct true record in the news report and the perspective in the editorial. However, nothing in this separation and independence intends to eliminate honesty, depth, analysis, or commentary from the content. Crichunter may assign hashtags or labels to the published content to enable distinguishing between news and views. 

Content containing obscenities and profanities 

Crichunter shall refrain from using obscenities and profanities in its content. However, an exception may be made for content where their use is utterly essential to conveying a story of significance, which would lose its meaning without them. In no case shall such usage be used without the prior approval of the executive or managing editors. 

If editors so decide that content containing potentially offensive material has legitimate news value, the usage of visual and/or textual warnings about such material is mandated on the published content. For instance, Crichunter may post a link to a web page containing material that does not meet Our standards for posting original content; along with the link, we shall include a warning, such as “Warning: Some images on this site contain graphic images of violence and are likely to be disturbing” to let Our users know what to expect prior to clicking the link.


The Crichunter fact-check team takes all efforts to ensure that any of the information that goes live is verified. We endeavor to be promptly responsive in correcting errors in the material published on our platform. When we run a correction, or clarification on our social media handles or share an editor’s note, our goal is to tell readers, as clearly and quickly as possible, what was wrong and what is correct. Anyone should be able to understand how and why a mistake has been corrected. 

Updating a Report 

We make it a practice to put notes on stories if a story has been updated. It is important for us to use a correction or clarification to inform readers whenever we correct a significant mistake or edit a story to include comments and updates from a stakeholder. 


If we are substantively correcting an article, photo caption, headline, graphic, video, or other material, we promptly publish a correction explaining the need for the said change. For any factual error in our fact-check article, as it comes to our notice, we do a revised article with a new conclusion and explain the correction at the top of the article and distribute it on all the social media platforms where our presence is. 


When our journalism is factually correct but the language, we used to explain those facts is not as clear or detailed as it should be, the language is rewritten and clarification is added to the story. A clarification is also used to note if we initially failed to seek a comment or response that has since been added to the story. 

Other Corrections Policies 

When an error is found by a reader and posted to the comment stream, our community engagement team can indicate in comments that it has been corrected. When we publish erroneous information on social networks, we correct it on that platform. We retract the incorrect information if we cannot alter it.

If you believe a story, we have published is inaccurate, please suggest corrections via the ‘Suggest A Correction’ section that appears at the end of every web story that is published. We also request our community members to send the correction to contact us.
