Are we allowed to report an article that gives wrong information? If so, how?
I am currently reading an article, I will not mention the title and the author of the article, but it's about animals. He has used two different incorrect photos. He said in his description and the caption of the photo that the animal is "fin whale", however, the animal on the photo is not a fin whale, it is a "whale shark." The other one is pigeon. He said it is endemic to the Philippines, however, the photo is not the pigeon that he is referring to and it is not native to the Philippines, it native to Latina. The article has been moved to Owlcation.
Contact him discretely via the contact on his profile or DM him on any social media profiles he has. It's not a HubPages "crime" to have incorrect information on an article, we all make mistakes. Most decent authors will appreciate the correction. I've had to do it a few times.
Your best bet is to contact the author directly. As a backup, you might let the HubPages team know about your concern; however, the primary responsibility is the author's.
Usually, other writer's appreciate suggestions and critiques of their work. So, don't be afraid to contact the author. We all make mistakes. Blessings!
If an article blatantly promotes quackery or provides disinformation about scientific topics, I would take the author on publicly in the comments (if we could comment). I did this some years ago with an author who was writing about free energy devices, but just got abuse on my own articles, but it was worth it.

The answer is no.In fact, they are the best country in the world at catching drugs smugglers. Removing Mahmoud Ahmadinejad from power could see the opening up of the most important drug smuggling route in the world. I don't want to see tonnes of opium in Europe from Afghanistan, just so that...
