The Site is owned, managed and operated by Aamader Malda Thinktank.
1. Fact-Checking Policy
Aamader Malda is committed to fact-checking in a fair, translucent, and unbiased manner. We strive for high editorial standards. Our reporters must be precious with their words, headlines, and URLs. They must understand that their words possess power and act responsibly. In doing so, reporters must verify the information they gather. These include identifying information such as names and position but also include factual statements and accounts. Reporters conduct their own fact-checking using their own judgment guided by the ethics policy.
Aamader Malda News has no political connections. We believe in fact-checking news from all ends of the political spectrum and apply the same standards to claims irrespective of who originate them. We call out fake news without fear or favor. Aamader Malda News explains in detail how the claim was debunked. This is done in the interest of transparency, and it also serves an educational purpose, guiding the readers on how to evaluate claims which they may come across in the future. Aamader Malda will use fact-checkers in certain circumstances it deemed warranted.
