Mineral Wells Area News Editorial Independence Policy

Mineral Wells Area News subscribes to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and
business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and
sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual
endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of
our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.
Our organization may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our
organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of
editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.

Our organization will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year. We will accept
anonymous donations for general support only if it is clear that sufficient safeguards have been put into
place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by our organization and in
compliance with INN’s Membership Standards.
