Let’s Discuss the Citizen Journalism Pledge | Bayosphere

Citizen Journalist Pledge

By submitting this form, I agree to be accurate, complete, fair and transparent in my postings on Bayosphere. I will operate with integrity.

I work in the community interest.

I report and produce news explaining the facts as fairly, thoroughly, accurately and openly as I can.

* Fair: I’m always listening to and taking account of other viewpoints;
* Thorough: I learn as much as I can in the time I have, and point to original sources when possible;
* Accurate: I get it right, checking my facts, correcting errors promptly and incorporating new information I learn from the community;
* Open: I explain my biases and conflicts, where appropriate.

I may also provide reviews (such as a critique of a movie or book) and commentary with a point of view based on facts, but I will have no significant financial or otherwise direct connection (membership, affiliation, close relationship, etc.) with an interested party.

If I do have such connections, I’ll disclose them prominently, and my work may be labeled and/or categorized appropriately.

I agree, as an active member of this community, to help uphold the integrity of this pledge by challenging and reporting inappropriate postings or abuse.

Dan Gillmor puso esto como punto de partida de discusi�n de lo que deber�a ser el compromiso del buen ciudadano-periodista contribuidor de su Bayosphere. Ya que los hispalibertinos se van a lanzar a la aventura apasionante de poner en marcha un proyecto de periodismo participativo, a lo mejor Manel o alguien deber�a redactar la Declaraci�n de Independencia del nuevo medio y someterlo a discusi�n, antes de que el defensor del lector os tome la delantera :o)

Aprovecho para desearos suerte en la singladura.
