I offer accuracy consultations for freelance and staff reporters who are looking for an independent, objective reader to take another glance at their story.
These consultations aim to fill a gap in journalism today, as few publications do a rigorous fact-check on stories before publication.
What will happen during these consultations:
I will flag: any claims that require a second look for accuracy, that might have legal ramifications for you or your sources.
I will have a phone call with the author to go over my report, and help propose changes for accuracy.
As this is not a formal fact-check, author is responsible for the accuracy of everything else, including but not limited to: names, genders, locations, specialties, spellings, dates, times, ages, figures, statistics, analogies, and metaphors.
Rates: $40/hour. For rush assignments (i.e.: anything that requires a < 48 hour turnaround), $60/hour.
Please send me an email for pieces you’d like to work on together.
