Here at CheerPick, We care about being clear and precise with words, headlines, and URLs and understand that words have the utmost power and act accordingly. Writers under Interesting Engineering must verify the information they gather and write. This includes identifying information such as names, locations, factual statements, and accounts related to the content. Writers do their own fact-checking using their judgment and information under the light of our Ethics Policy.
Our official fact-checker is ready to use fact-checkers online and within the editorial team in certain circumstances, if need be. We are committed to non-partisanship, transparency of sources, transparency of funding, and being open to reasonable criticism and corrections in our organization. We check the information with all related parties before publishing it online.
If we receive a claim regarding fact-checking on our website, we first contact the source of the claim for further elaboration and supporting information. We also contact individuals and organizations who would have more information about or have relevant experience on the subject at hand, as well as researching relevant literature (news articles, scientific and medical journal articles, books, interview transcripts, and statistical sources) that has bearing on the topic.
We prefer to use unbiased information and data sources viewed by our equals as much as possible. We also alert our readers that information and data from sources, such as political advocacy organizations and sided parties, should be evaluated considerately.
