Update on Our Women Speak Out PAC Fact-check

On October 13, The Dispatch published a fact-check of a viral post from Women Speak Out PAC related to Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and abortion. The fact-check was published in error and in draft form, before it had been through final edits and our own internal fact-checking process. As a result, the viral post was assigned a “partly false” rating that we have determined is not justified after completing The Dispatch fact-checking process. We regret the error and apologize to the Women Speak Out PAC. We’ve pulled the fact-check and lifted the rating.

The mere existence of a fact-checking program at The Dispatch means that we take seriously facts and accuracy. We have a responsibility not only to meet but to exceed the standards to which we hold others. That didn’t happen in this case.
