Don’t Regret The Error: a journalist’s checklist

To promote his new book, Regret The Error’s Craig Silverman has come up with a handy checklist all reporters should use when research/writing/publishing a story.

The free-to-download list ranges from the very standard (checking the spelling of people/place names etc) to more web-focused checkpoints (check URLs are working, save links from research).

“Checklists help reporters and editors increase their level of accuracy (…) Seriously, it’s one of the easiest things a journalist can do to prevent factual errors,” adds Silverman.
