Email outreach to Lead Stories, Oct. 21, 2019

Editor’s note: This post was scheduled to publish at 8:01 a.m. on Oct. 24, 2019. A malfunction kept the post from publishing. Working to address the problem resulted in it publishing at 11:05 a.m. but with the 8:01 a.m. time stamp. We then immediately added this note and corrected the time stamp.

On Oct. 21, 2019 Zebra Fact Check sent a correction request to Lead Stories via editor Maarten Schenk. Lead Stories lists Schenk as the contact for correction requests.

Ordinarily we allow at least a week to pass before publishing our email outreach efforts. We make an exception in this case because Zebra Fact Check is publishing a story where the email outreach counts as relevant context.

We will update this item if we receive a noticeable response from Lead Stories.
