Want the facts on our stories? Ask us here

Because of some flubs since Capitol Hill Blue went online on October 1, 1994, some feel the reporting on this web site can’t be trusted.  We disagree but I have admitted past mistakes in some stories that have cast public doubt on this site’s credibility.

Of the more than 100,000 stories published on this web site since 1996, it is less than one tenth of one percent of stories that have caused these controversies.  In my opinion, that still too many, so I decided to go back through our archives and fact check all of our stories again. It’s an ongoing process but when we find an error, we publicly correct it and admit our mistakes.

If you have questions about our stories, past or present, this is the place to ask those questions.  I will answer each inquiry personally and — if necessary — go back and take another look at the story in question.

There are a lot of web sites out there who second guess us. We’re willing to do it to ourselves.

When stories are corrected or removed from the site, they will be listed here. For a look at my past screwups, please read the following stories:

The last story that caused these questions appeared in 2007 — four years ago. It’s my goal that such lapses in judgment never happen again.
