Once the News Story is Out

Answer

Tip 10: Ask for corrections if they get something wrong about you.

Corrections are “basic journalistic hygiene." If a reporter gets something wrong about you or what you said, you can ask them to run a correctionEven if it’s a TV or radio segment, they can add the correction to the top of the web page where that story lives. 

If you have the reporter’s contact, you can ask them directly via phone and/or email (both are recommended). If they don’t answer, you can usually find on Google how to report an error or submit a correction to that specific news organization. Call and email the news desk!
