Content removal policy


Ka Leo does not remove online content (including but not limited to articles, columns, editorials, photos, letters to the editor, and videos) from online archives once the content has been published in any format unless there are exceptional circumstances. Such circumstances may include legal and/or ethical reasons.  

Because Ka Leo's online content management platform keeps the article's original headline as the URL, even if the headline is changed, Ka Leo may repost an article to reflect the most recent headline if the original one was severely incorrect or misleading.

Updates and/or corrections may run if an item is factually inaccurate. When these are run, the date and time of the change should be included at the top of the article.

To request a correction, contact the Editor-in-Chief in writing by letter or email with the following information:

-Name, telephone number, email address

-URL address of the content in question

-Reference to the specific content that is inaccurate and an explanation of how that information is inaccurate.

Correction requests will be reviewed by the editor of the desk that's in charge of the content in question and the Editor-in-Chief and/or Managing Editor. If the request is determined valid, a correction or update will be issued.

Quotes are highly unlikely to be amended without written or audio documentation.
