Co-Founders of Fugitive Watch Scott Castruita and Steve Ferdin have joined 5,105 signers, 48 organizations, 80 government officials, and 371 public figures taking the Pro-Truth Pledge.
By taking the pledge, we hope to reassure the public that we will never publish “Fake News”. Our pledge can be seen below. You can learn more about the pledge by watching the video.
I Pledge My Earnest Efforts To:
Verify: fact-check information to confirm it is true before accepting and sharing it
Balance: share the whole truth, even if some aspects do not support my opinion
Cite: share my sources so that others can verify my information
Clarify: distinguish between my opinion and the facts
Acknowledge: acknowledge when others share true information, even when we disagree otherwise
Reevaluate: reevaluate if my information is challenged, retract it if I cannot verify it
Defend: defend others when they come under attack for sharing true information, even when we disagree otherwise
Align: align my opinions and my actions with true information
Fix: ask people to retract information that reliable sources have disproved even if they are my allies
Educate: compassionately inform those around me to stop using unreliable sources even if these sources support my opinion
Defer: recognize the opinions of experts as more likely to be accurate when the facts are disputed
Celebrate: celebrate those who retract incorrect statements and update their beliefs toward the truth
Take the Pledge
