All of our journalism products will abide by the strictest professional standards.
We believe that, as we shine a light into dark places, we ourselves should not be resistant to the demand for accountability.
High quality, high integrity journalism is journalism that is accountable to the public it serves.
Think Media subscribes to the Code of Practice of the Media Council of Bermuda, the self regulatory complaints body for media outlets based in Bermuda. That means, if you believe we have violated its Code of Practice you can file a complaint with the Media Council.
We also abide by the Code of Conduct of the National Union of Journalists – among the world’s largest (and oldest) journalism unions – the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists and the Statement of Ethical Principles of the Associated Press Media Editors.
And we’ve adopted specific policies for special situations that can occur with sources for our stories (see Think Media Policy on Sources).
We believe these codes are complementary and self-reinforcing, but where they differ substantially, we will abide by guidelines which ensure the highest journalistic integrity and we invite the Media Council of Bermuda to apply those higher standards in addressing complaints to which we are a party.
For our more significant and controversial stories, we will proactively explain the processes involved in their production.
An independent Public Editor will also be available to field complaints, concerns and suggestions to make our system of accountability even more robust and transparent.
Once appointed, the Public Editor will be given space on our sites to address such concerns transparently by discussing the issues, our responses and making recommendations for improvement as she sees fit.
We will publish our policies and practices as they develop and evolve, and are working on a single, integrated document that details the guidelines that will govern our work
