Accuracy in Writing

Any article have two important features, namely, the style and the content. Writing style is important to keep the reader interested. The content can be either views or facts. The writer has the liberty to write down his opinions in his own manner. However, the facts included in any form of written material should be reliable.

There are instances where very important Sri Lankan newspapers having articles with grossly inaccurate facts. Also, there are instances where articles from English language sources have been translated so that its original meaning has been totally altered. Its sad that writers who contribute to widely circulating newspapers can sometimes be so irresponsible.

A writer must make sure that his/her writings have accurate facts, whatever his/her opinion or analysis may be.
