Corrections policy

Journalistic error is not fake news

Conceptually, the journalistic error is not intentional. It is something that can happen in journalistic practice, often due to the loosening of investigation procedures, other times due to mistakes by the source, etc. But, in theory, the vehicle does not want to go wrong (and here I am not referring to manipulation, which is another concept).

Of technical and ethical nature, the journalistic error is the incorrectness, falsification or imprecision in the publication of a news item, caused by negligence, imprudence or malpractice. Failure to admit the error or its deliberate occurrence affects the quality and credibility of the journalistic product with the reading public or other interested groups.

In this definition, what I call “deliberate occurrence”, that is, when something is done on purpose, it comes close to understanding fake news. But although they have similar consequences - they affect quality and credibility - they are not synonymous.
