11)    These principles are supported by specific operational guidelines to editorial staff

II          GUIDELINES

 

2.0       Following are the Guidelines to guide our reporters and journalists -:

 

  • The Patriot on Sunday is an English language newspaper that at all times avoids verbosity. Connect the topic to the readership of the publication. If it is an international story, demonstrate its relevance or implications to national issues.

 

  • Separate fact from opinion and back arguments with facts and be sure to confirm those facts before they are used. To this end, stories and articles must be researched first. It is better to miss a deadline than to apologize later or pay damages.

 

  • Stories and articles must be informative and advance the readers’ understanding of an issue, whether they are economic, political, social etc. Story headlines must at all times reflect and be supported by the content of the story. Using misleading story headlines merely to sensationalize a story is unacceptable.

 

  • To encourage diversity of opinion and accommodate as many readers’ reaction as possible to debates and issues raised in stories and articles letters to the Editor must be short (maximum of 500 words). Long letters will be edited for space while ensuring the essential points are not compromised.

 

2.5       Whilst humor and sarcasm are acceptable as literary embellishments, the company

 

will not publish letters, stories, and articles that are scurrilous, contain invective, innuendo, insults, or that promotes racial, ethnic, religious intolerance and dare generally in a bad taste.

 

2.6       Stories and reports that are of lewd or salacious nature can only be used if they are of interest to the public. Privacy of individuals should be protected, bearing in mind that freedom of the press and the right to information should not infringe on the rights of other people.

 

  • Whilst the company upholds the principle of protecting the identity of sources, this principle must be used with caution. Request of anonymity by a source should be carefully evaluated by the Editor to ensure that sources do not use this privilege to peddle gossip, rumor and make unfounded allegations about subjects of a story or use the publication to settle scores.

 

  • It is the responsibility and duty of the Editor to ensure that stories are well researched and supported by evidence. Errors in stories and articles will be speedily corrected and given the same prominence as the original story.

 

  • The company recognizes and guarantees the editorial independence of its Editors, in particular in the selection and rejection of editorial content. Such independence however carries with it the responsibility and the duty to publish accurate, unbiased and well researched stories and articles.

 

If you should find that we are not living up to our Editorial Guidelines, please feel free to write to the Secretary, Inskip Editorial Advisory Committee, quoting the story, the date and the guideline you feel has been violated. The address is P. O. Box 81212 Gaborone, Botswana
