The mission of Mr. Glitterati to share unbiased online news and media for the Global Citizen focusing on Intellectual, Cultural, Scientific, and Political topics.
These policies are meant to guide Mr. Glitterati as we deliver news and information. This is a “living document” and we will modify and update it based on feedback from our writers and readers.
Conflict of Interest
Mr. Glitterati pledges to avoid conflicts of interest or the appearance of a conflict of interest wherever and whenever possible. Specifically:
We accept no gifts from news sources.
Our writers are not allowed to accept payment from any person, company, or organization that he or she covers.
We avoid involvement in any partisan causes this includes but is not limited to politics, community affairs, social action, demonstrations, or anything that could compromise our ability to share content fairly and without bias.
Mr. Glitterati is committed to fair and unbiased content. Our commitment to fairness is based on diligently seeking verification and also ensuring both verification and comment are taken into account.
The separation of online media and news is a hard line with Mr. Glitterati. This separation was created to protect the reader who is entitled to facts and to know when news and opinion have deviated. This also includes “Reviews” seen from time to time which is typically a critical assessment of a service, product, performance, or artistic or literary work.
Social-media accounts maintained by Mr. Glitterati are an extension of the website and our online media and news. Mr. Glitterati journalists, staff, et al are required to refrain from writing, tweeting, or posting anything – including photographs or video – that could objectively be perceived as reflecting political, racial, sexist, religious, or other bias or favoritism.
Mr. Glitterati Journalists
Mr. Glitterati journalists may not misrepresent their identity or their occupation. They may not portray themselves as anything other than writers/journalists.
Verification and fact-checking standards
Mr. Glitterati writers and journalists have primary responsibility for reporting, writing, and fact-checking their content. Articles are subject to review by one or more editors. Editors are also involved in the presentation of articles and content as well as headlines, news alerts, and newsletters.
Mr. Glitterati (LLC) is owned by Ron Jones, the founder, and chief executive of The Glitterati. Mr. Glitterati was founded in 2008.
Mr. Glitterati strives for accurate content and news. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on the ability to promptly correct errors. When we run a correction we inform our readers of what was wrong and how we corrected it.
When our content or news is factually correct but our language is not clear or detailed as it should be, the language is rewritten and a clarification added to the story.
Take-down (unpublish) requests
Mr. Glitterati’s policy is we do not grant take-down requests. If the subject claims that the story was inaccurate, we should be prepared to investigate and, if necessary, publish a correction.
Policy on Sources
Mr. Glitterati is committed to disclosing to its readers the sources of the information in its content, news, and articles. Again, our mission is unbiased and transparent content. Moreover, we do not share blind quotations whose only purpose is to add color to a story. Mr. Glitterati also does not allow pseudonyms which can mislead our readers about the identities of people who appear in our content or articles.
We are always truthful regarding the source of our information. Facts and quotations in content that were not produced by our own reporting must be attributed. Attribution of material from other media is total. Plagiarism is not permitted.
Quoting Sources and Sharing Information
Mr. Glitterati’s objective in quoting people is to capture both their words and intended meaning accurately and we do not change the rules governing specific quotations after the fact. Once a quote is on the record, it remains there.
