Blog Editorial Standards

If you would like the ability to post on the TEAParty911.com blog, please submit your request to our editorial staff at editor@teaparty911.com.

MISSION:

1) Educate  and Inform – The Tea Party Movement is dedicated to restoring first principles  to governance at all levels.  This  blog will be used to further this goal through content designed to  educate voters on the principles of our Founding Fathers and their application  to current political actions and governmental policies.

2) Coordinate Activities – Tea  Party 911 is an activist organization dedicated to restoring our government to  its constitutional limitations.  This  blog seeks to inform voters and coordinate activities designed to achieve  these ends.

ORIGINAL  CONTENT – will  be edited for conformance to standard English and first principles.

PREPUBLISHED  CONTENT and LINKS – will be republished as is, in its  original form without further editing on our part.

CONTENT – may or may not reflect the  views of Tea Party 911, their affiliates, editorial staff, or this  newsletter.  Differing points of view  will be published without sanction.  Our  function in these matters is to inform.

STANDARDS  FOR PUBLICATION– Content submitted for publication will not be accepted if it contains the  following:

  1. RANTS – Unsupported  criticism.  Ex. — He wants to starve old  people.  Criticize the policy, detail  the effects, or question but do not impugn the motives.  If you can quote him saying, ‘I want to  starve old people’ you are home free.
  2. NAME CALLING – Ex. — He’s a  bore.  Can you cite an example where he  put someone into coma simply by speaking to that person?
  3. THREATS – To threaten people,  their family or associates, their reputation or property is not  acceptable.  Neither is inciting others  to do so.  Revealing truths about  people which reflects poorly on their character is Okay, but we will require verification  of the facts, and the editorial staff may supply context.
  4. FOUL LANGUAGE – We encourage  politically aware young people to read Tea Party 911, and we will not  participate in their corruption.

Additionally,  we may receive multiple submissions on a given subject with much duplication of  thought.  We will publish content  that, in our judgment, will be most meaningful to our readers.  If you feel a nuance in your omitted  submission is significant, try addressing your issue in a letter to the editor.

OWNERSHIP – Upon receipt all submissions  become the property of Tea Party 911 and may be printed and reprinted by us at  will and without notification or compensation.   We do not, however, retain exclusive rights to any article, and the author is free to submit and/or sell the article  to other outlets at will and without notification to Tea Party 911.  All work will be attributed to the original  author when known to us unless a request for anonymity is received on the submission.  By submitting content to  Tea Party 911, the author accepts and authorizes editing of the material without  notice.  Further, by submitting an article  to Tea Party 911, it is assumed, unless otherwise stated on the  submission, that the submitter is the author and all liability for plagiarism and  all other legal issues is assumed by the submitter.  Tea Party 911 reserves the right to comment  editorially on the content of any submission.   Tea  Party 911 strives to adhere to the highest ethical standards.  Please direct criticisms and suggestions  directly to the editor at editor@teaparty911.com .  We  reserve the right to change or amend these standards at any time and without  notification.

Respectfully,

The  editorial staff at Tea Party 911.
