Ethics Policy

At Six Sports, we are committed to maintaining the highest standards of journalistic integrity and ethical conduct. Our mission is to provide accurate, fair, and comprehensive sports news to our diverse audience. This ethics policy outlines the principles and guidelines that all members of our team must follow to uphold our commitment to quality journalism.

1. Accuracy and Fairness

Verification: We strive to ensure that all information we publish is accurate and verified. We double-check facts, sources, and figures before publication.

Correction: If an error is discovered, we will promptly correct it and issue a clear and transparent correction notice.

Balance: We aim to present balanced coverage and give voice to multiple perspectives, especially on controversial issues.

2. Independence and Objectivity

Editorial Independence: Our editorial content is produced independently of any commercial, political, or personal interests. Editors and journalists are free from undue influence from advertisers, sponsors, or other external pressures.

Conflict of Interest: Team members must disclose any potential conflicts of interest and recuse themselves from related reporting. We avoid accepting gifts, favors, or special treatment that could compromise our objectivity.

3. Transparency

Sources: We identify our sources of information whenever possible. If a source requests anonymity, we evaluate the credibility and necessity before granting it, and we protect their identity rigorously.

Funding Disclosure: We disclose any financial relationships, sponsorships, or affiliate links associated with our content. Sponsored content is clearly marked as such.

4. Respect and Sensitivity

Privacy: We respect the privacy of individuals and do not publish private information without consent, unless it is of significant public interest.

Avoiding Harm: We consider the potential impact of our reporting on individuals and communities. We avoid sensationalism and respect the dignity of those involved in our stories.

Personal Attacks: We do not engage in personal attacks or publish content that is defamatory or unnecessarily inflammatory.

5. Integrity in Reporting

Plagiarism: We do not tolerate plagiarism. All content must be original or properly attributed.

Credit: We give credit to original sources of information, images, and ideas. We seek permission for the use of non-official art and other proprietary content.

6. Responsibility to the Audience

Engagement: We value our audience and encourage feedback. We respond to questions, concerns, and complaints promptly and constructively.

Ethical Advertising: Our advertising policies ensure that advertisements do not compromise the integrity of our content. Advertisements are clearly distinguishable from editorial content.

7. Professional Conduct

Training: We provide ongoing training to our team on ethical journalism practices and emerging issues in sports reporting.

Compliance: All team members must comply with this ethics policy and relevant laws and regulations.
