Loudspeaker accepts and adheres to the ethical standards endorsed by the industry and our fellow organizations. Loudspeaker will always strive to promote a high standard of journalistic integrity. In certain instances of ethical dilemmas, Loudspeaker will practice the following guidelines:
Loudspeaker shall NOT published false statement(s) that is damaging to a person’s reputation; nor shall the organization produce any other forms of false information in order to harm a person’s character. Material produced for Loudspeaker shall be accurate, transparent, and will aim to tell a complete story.
Any written or produced material on Loudspeaker shall not be changed or altered without “authors” permission. The “author” has the right to present the facts and also present their interpretation of those facts, which they truly believe is fair and measured.
The interviewer shall be forthright about the topic they are trying to explore and why they want the perspective of the person/subject they’re interviewing. When a person is interviewed, their words may be used directly (in the form of quotations) and indirectly (as ideas that have been translated by the understanding or interpretation of the interviewer) in the “prose” of a piece. Be advised that there’s a chance that the interviewer could interpret information differently than the subject or interviewee intended. The responsibility is upon the subject or interviewee to clarify all information. Read Loudspeaker’s Interview Agreement (Click Here).
