Letter to the Editor:
We encourage letters to the editor and online feedback. To submit a letter, please email email@example.com and include “Letter” in the subject line. Commentaries, letters to the editor, editorial cartoons and other editorial content expresses the opinions of their authors and not necessarily the views of the newspaper.
The Towerlight is dedicated to maintaining our journalistic integrity and transparency to our readers. In doing so, we want to make sure any writing published on our website, whether it be opinion or news, is 100% factually accurate. While we strive to be right all the time, mistakes do happen.
When a correction is needed, an editor will make the change as soon as possible on the article itself. The correction will be explained at the bottom of the article.
If the error needing correction or redaction is egregious, The Towerlight will make a public correction on social media platforms and make an editor’s note within the story.
Any questions about the corrections policy can be directed to Editor@thetowerlight.com.
