In any undemocratic country any news must be checked again and again before they can be printed, so what verb should i use to describe the process of checking sth, expecially for news,books ect. and could you give me a revelant example?


Well, it depends. "Check" has several meanings.

Do you mean the news story has to be checked for errors (editing)?

Or do you mean the information in the story has to be checked for accuracy (researching)?

Or do you mean that the story has to go through the censors before it can be printed (approved)?


I think proofread can be used here.
