Press Retraction Policy

Additional Information

Force newspapers and Magazines to print Retractions on the same page as the original article, taking up the same amount of space as the original article, using at least the same font size as the original article. The Retraction should have a heading clearly labelled as a retraction in at least the same font size as the original article's largest heading. The retraction can be padded with white space.

eg. If a Front page Headline is Proven false, then the Retraction must be made on the Front page of the same Newspaper/Magazine.

The Schedule for printing the retraction can stand as it is.
