Copy Editor’s Tip: Checking facts

Leave a comment

Today, I’ll meet friends and watch Spain play soccer. But at what time does Spain play, who do they play and do they even play today? I checked the FIFA website. Next, I checked my local TV program guide for the exact broadcast time in my area. Tip when checking facts: Always, always go to the main source first and consider the information there the most reliable. In this case, it’s the FIFA (Fédération Internationale de Football Association).

Paraguay vs. Spain, July 3, 1:30 p.m. (CT) on ABC. In my area, California, ABC will start the broadcast at 11 a.m. ¡Viva España! ¡Viva Paraguay!
