Editorial Standards

The Capital Hill News team adheres to a strict editorial policy. It’s designed to hold our writers and editors accountable for their work while at the same time ensuring your time is well spent and respected.

Capital Hill News Ethics

We believe in factual reporting. We don’t believe in personal attacks or mudslinging. You’re never going to see us make fun of someone’s appearance or medical condition. We stick to fact-based reporting and only focus on what actually matters – the things that may hinder the performance of your elected officials and actually have an impact on your day to day lives. We also work hard to ensure sensitive topics are covered respectfully.

Our Editorial and Plagiarism Policy

We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to plagiarism and the use of artificial intelligence. We demand our writers do their homework, thoroughly fact-check their work, and disclose all applicable sources. This policy is in place to protect the integrity of our reporting and to protect you from false and opinionated submissions.

Transparent Updates

All of that said, humans do occasionally make mistakes, receive bad information, or find themselves facing a fast-evolving story. In the event we do mess up, we promise to make a swift correction, transparently share what happened, and take the action needed to prevent something similar in the future.
