code of ethics

1. We pledge to deliver the best possible information, given our skills and resources. Our main objective is based on the quality of what we do and not the quantity.

2. We pledge to empower with useful tools as to comprehend reality and its complexity and to seize the opportunity to improve, without over-simplifying, exaggerating or bending events, data and opinions.

3. We pledge to explain our values and objectives – which inevitably influence political choices about cultural opinion and fact analysis, but not about their description.

4. We pledge to not run after visibility, readers and power. We rebuke sensationalism: we do not build scandals, we do not incite clashes, and we do not even try to appease you.

5. We pledge to decline any attempt to influence our actions that lies outside the lines of our principles. We also pledge to listen and value any suggestion in line with our principles.

6. We pledge to make any effort to verify the authenticity of the information given, and to demystify and deliberate any possible doubt about any of the reported news.

7. We pledge to always indicate our sources and to add a link. When we will not follow such principle, we pledge to explain the reasons (e.g.: to block illicit advertising).

8. We pledge to protect our direct sources by guaranteeing anonymity when necessary to their safety, and refusing to exercise or to receive pressure, in demand of their names.

9. We pledge to request, to the other media, a correct and respectful use of information, and we will not keep silent because of convenience, similar ideologies or affability.

10. We are fully conscious of not being infallible, therefore we are asking to advise for any mistake, inaccuracy or shortcoming. We will evaluate any suggestion and we will correct it, if needed.
