Kathimerini Publishing S.A.
Athens, Greece • Founded in 1919 • Trust Project news partner since
eKathimerini is the English-language version of a daily Greek print and digital publication that covers breaking news, political and financial analysis and opinion pieces.
Kathimerini's goal is to provide detailed and extensive information to its readers both in print and online through a mix of news articles, analyses and opinions.
For Kathimerini, it is important to clarify whether a text is news, analysis or opinion. The aim is to have complete clarity so that the reader can distinguish objective from subjective information.
The publication's reporters are expected to remain honest, fair and dedicated to collecting, reporting and interpreting information in search of the truth. Kathimerini says it is committed to editorial independence and refusing to report based on personal interests and/or biases.
The newspaper is published by the company Kathimerini SA.
Kathimerini's policy says it is fully committed to cultivating a workforce based on diversity. The newspaper's journalists aim to reflect the widest range of society, without discrimination on the basis of gender, social class, generation, sexual orientation or political affiliation, and the administration works hard to ensure the diversity of its staff and the content it publishes. Reflecting on these differences, the newspaper aims to better cover and build a more informed and broad journalistic community.
The publication's policy states that it will correct any wrong information or error found in its content, regardless of the size or gravity of the mistake. When minor errors are brought to the editorial team's attention, the digital version of the text should be updated immediately and the correction should be noted. With larger errors, the newspaper may publish a letter to its readers to flag the mistake.
The policy allows the use of unnamed sources in few cases to secure more information or to protect the security of the source. Anonymity is granted when the source may encounter legal or physical risk due to the information it has provided. The editorial team is supposed to cross-reference any information it receives from sources, named or unnamed, in an effort to remain truthful.
The Trust Project is an international consortium of news organizations building standards of transparency and working with technology platforms to affirm and amplify journalism’s commitment to transparency, accuracy, inclusion and fairness so that the public can make informed news choices.
