Fact-Checking Policy

Jazz Artistry Now is committed to publishing accurate information across all of its platforms. We take many steps to ensure accuracy:

We investigate claims with skepticism; question assumptions; challenge conventional wisdom; confirm information with experts and current data; and seek to independently corroborate claims made by sources or entities.

We verify third-party claims and information using original documents and primary sources whenever possible, and make explicit the origin of information and data.

While we do not allow sources to review a story prior to publication, we may share relevant quotes or data with a source to confirm accuracy.

Jazz Artistry Now articles and reviews are fact-checked. Jazz Artistry Now counts on its contributing writers and editors to make independent evaluations of any difficult topics, to report on and analyze those topics using verifiable facts, and to clearly identify the sources of all information presented.

Whenever possible, Jazz Artistry Now provides direct links to original sources and data directly in a given article.

We stand by the accuracy of our reporting, and strive to quickly and transparently correct any errors.

We welcome feedback from our readers and sources regarding the information that we publish at
