MyParisTexas.com strives for accurate and complete information. When a mistake is made and is verified, it is our priority to ensure it is corrected promptly. When a correction is made, clarification or an editor’s note, we will inform the readers of the corrected mistake.
Though it could be deemed unnecessary to place a note on an updated story, it is necessary and our obligation to state when a significant correction or clarification is made.
When our reporting is factually correct, but language used to explain facts is unclear or not as detailed as it should, it will be rewritten and a clarification note will be added. We will also add a clarification note when a comment or response is added to the story.
OTHER CORRECTION POLICIES
- When we are made aware of an error, a comment on social media will be made where the story was posted stating a correction was made.

REQUEST TO TAKE-DOWN OR UNPUBLISH A STORY
It is our policy to not grant take-down requests, however if we are made aware of an inaccurate story, we are prepared to investigate and publish a correction. There are situations in which an update or follow-up coverage is needed on an ongoing story. This includes when someone is charged with a crime and the charges are dropped after the initial reported charge.
It is our duty to consider editorial action when a request to either take-down or unpublished an article, but the article will not be removed.
