Ethics Policy

The Lynnwood Times is a member of the Society of Professional Journalism and follows its four principles as the foundation of ethical journalism.

Corrections Policy

Corrections are an important part of journalism, and we’re committed to being transparent about our work. Corrections will be noted on the top of the article as an editor’s note in bold for reference going forward. It will also be placed as an editor’s note on page 3 of the next in-print issue.

If you think an error has been made in a story, please email us at so that we can look into it.

Fact-Checking Policy

Fact-checking is an essential part of the modern news cycle, but with it comes the responsibility to be accurate in your reporting. At the Lynnwood Times we work hard to ensure that what we report is accurate, fair, and factual. This means that if there are facts that are unclear, we will go back and verify them before publishing anything. If they’re still unclear after investigation, we’ll publish them anyway with a note saying “unverified” or “unconfirmed.” Our goal is to make sure that only things we know for certain are ever published; this helps our readers trust us more than other news sources.

We at the Lynnwood Times also consider the context: who said it and where they are speaking from. We do not fact-check statements about personal opinions or beliefs unless those opinions or beliefs are relevant to an issue or will impact the context of article.

Tell us what you think.
