Mission, Ethics, Standard & Correction Policy

Mission

The main idea behind creating this website was not just only report the news but was also to provide a platform to movie/tv geeks to write their theories and publish their deep dives on a news story. We provide the best available information in a very simplistic way, and that's why we developed this website with the minimum possible ads and a simple template that lets the users read in any device easily. We hope when you come and visit our site, you do like it or provide your feedback if you didn't so that we can improve it for better use.

These policies are meant to guide our journalism as we deliver news and information in a rapidly changing media environment. We consider these guidelines to be a “living document” that we will continually modify and update based on feedback from our journalists, our readers, and our perceptions of our changing needs. Because the circumstances under which information is obtained and reported vary widely from one case to the next, these guidelines should not be understood as establishing hard and fast rules or as covering every situation that might arise.

Conflict of Interest

This news organization is pledged to avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest wherever and whenever possible. We have adopted stringent policies on these issues, conscious that they may be more restrictive than is customary in the world of private business.

We pay our own way

We accept no gifts from news sources. We accept no free trips. We neither seek nor accept preferential treatment that might be rendered because of the positions we hold. Exceptions to the no-gift rule are few and obvious — invitations to meals. Free admissions to any event that is not free to the public are prohibited. The only exception is for seats not sold to the public, as in a press box, or tickets provided for a critic’s review. Whenever possible, arrangements will be made to pay for such seats.

We do not accept payment – either honoraria or expenses – from governments, government-funded organizations, groups of government officials, political groups, or organizations that take positions on controversial issues. A reporter or editor also cannot accept payment from any person, company, or organization that he or she covers. And we should avoid accepting money from individuals, companies, trade associations, or organizations that lobby the government or otherwise try to influence issues the newspaper covers. Broadcast organizations, educational institutions, social organizations, and many professional organizations usually fall outside this provision unless the reporter or editor is involved in coverage of them.

Fairness

Reporters and editors of Moviesr.net are committed to fairness. While arguments about objectivity are endless, the concept of fairness is something that editors and reporters can easily understand and pursue. Fairness results from a few simple practices: No story is fair if it omits facts of major importance or significance. Fairness includes completeness.

No story is fair if it includes essentially irrelevant information at the expense of significant facts. Fairness includes relevance.

No story is fair if it consciously or unconsciously misleads or even deceives the reader. Fairness includes honesty–leveling with the reader.

No story is fair if it covers individuals or organizations that have not been allowed to address assertions or claims about them made by others. Fairness includes diligently seeking comment and taking that comment genuinely into account.

Taste

We respect to taste and decency, understanding that society’s concepts of taste and decency are constantly changing. In no case shall obscenities be used without the approval of the executive or managing editors. If editors decide that content containing potentially offensive material has a legitimate news value, editors should use visual and/or text warnings about such material.

Finally, we do not link to sites that aid or abet illegal activity. Consult with the Legal Department if you have a question about whether a site falls under this rule.

Opinion

The labels are designed as follows:

  • Analysis: Interpretation of the news based on evidence, including data, as well as anticipating how events might unfold based on past events.
  • Perspective: Discussion of news topics with a point of view, including narratives by individuals regarding their own experiences.
  • Opinion: A column or blog in the Opinions section.
  • Review: A professional critic’s assessment of a service, product, performance, or artistic or literary work.

Social Media

When using networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., for reporting or for our personal lives, we must protect our professional integrity. Journalists must refrain from writing, tweeting, or posting anything – including photographs or video – that could objectively be perceived as reflecting political, racial, sexist, religious, or other bias or favoritism.

A Journalist’s Role

Although it has become increasingly difficult in an Internet age, reporters should make every effort to remain in the audience, to be the stagehand rather than the star, to report the news, not to make the news.

Verification and fact-checking standards

We have primary responsibility for reporting, writing, and fact-checking our stories. Stories are subject to review by one or more editors. We have a multi-level structure for the review and editing of stories that may include fact-checking. These include assignment editors who collaborate with reporters on the origination of stories and typically provide an initial review when a story is submitted by a reporter. Editors who oversee digital platforms also may be involved in the presentation of stories as well as headlines, news alerts, and newsletters.

Corrections

If we are substantively correcting an article, photo caption, headline, graphic, video, or other material, we should promptly publish a correction explaining the change.

Clarification

When our journalism is factually correct but the language we used to explain those facts is not as clear or detailed as it should be, the language should be rewritten and a clarification added to the story. A clarification can also be used to note that we initially failed to seek a comment or response that has since been added to the story or that new reporting has shifted our account of an event.

Editor’s Notes

A correction that calls into question the entire substance of an article, raises a significant ethical matter or addresses whether an article did not meet our standards, may require an Editor’s Note and be followed by an explanation of what is at issue.

Other Corrections Policies

When an error is found by a reader and posted to the comment stream, the audience engagement team should indicate in comments that it has been corrected. If we have sent out incorrect information in an alert, we should send out an alert informing people that the news reported in the earlier alert was wrong and give readers accurate information. When we publish erroneous information on social networks, we should correct it on that platform. We do not attribute blame to individual reporters or editors (e.g. “because of a reporting error” or “because of an editing error”). But we may note that an error was the result of a production problem or because incorrect information came to us from a trusted source (wire services, individuals quoted, etc.)
