Government Document Publication Standards And Practices
The government sourced materials published in Newsroom Magazine are solicited materials whose chain-of-custody is assured by government transmission directly to our private news wire facilities. Newsroom Magazine vouches for the legitimacy of such content as well as the chain of custody by which official government news and information is delivered to our newsroom.
Newsroom Magazine applies its published standards and ethics policies, potential historical importance, and newsworthiness considerations to the selection of credible and relevant government information.
Materials that meet our selection standards are published as “Reliable Sources” to make clear that the source materials, their editing, formatting and presentation are compliant with Newsroom Magazine standards and practices. We require that the origin agency, department or person be cited as the source.
Newsroom Magazine publishes materials from outside sources as-is under the Reliable Sources byline.
As-is publication recognizes that news and information proffered to Newsroom Magazine by outside organizations and/or governments, no matter its news value or relevancy, may be slanted, inaccurate, incomplete, politically motivated, or obfuscatory.
Newsroom Magazine editors choose materials proffered by outside organizations and/or governments for a variety or reasons ranging from having the qualities of serving as an honest broker of news to having the qualities of governmental, institutional or commercial deceit, incompetence or misdirection.
In fulfillment or our repository responsibilities, outside materials are published, almost exclusively, without comment or judgment. Accordingly, the value and/or credibility, relevancy or probity of the content of such materials is left up to the reader.
Government Generated Content Editing And Presentation Standards
- We select content for publication based on its:
- National and/or International News value
- Relevancy to U.S. citizens, states, communities and interests.
- Our policy is not to alter official government content except as stated below:
- We redact and clearly identify what has been redacted in government published content based on the following considerations:
- We routinely remove ( redact ) materials from the end of government documents without citation where the redacted materials are not directly related to the body of the document. We do this because some government bodies routinely tag their materials with invitations to visit their website, or to promote their importance, or make political statements and/or arguments.
- We clearly mark and identify redaction of governmental content where the redacted materials are administrative in nature or otherwise do not bear on the accuracy or completeness of that content. We do this when the administrative materials, such as what are sometimes very long list of meeting attendees are inserted, where such materials are not germane to the remainder of the content.
- All other content that is changed ( other than formatting ), updated, relocated, or deleted is identified in a redaction notice within any containerized, transcripted or packaged content.
Redaction Term Definitions
- Names — Removal or deletion of attendance lists, names of persons in groups, or names not relevant to the document or issue.
- Graphics — Removal of graphs, charts or images that are either not available, unrelated, or unsuitable for inclusion.
- Partial — Removal of textual materials outside of the scope of included materials, i.e. redaction of a broadcast to a single segment, or quoted materials to a single issue or other means of organization.
- Media — Removal of images, audio or video cited by the media type, as for example, video.
- Limited — Indicates redacted content is incomplete, as for example written testimony before a governmental body absent either questions or live testimony that followed. As for example. Limited to prepared comments. Or limited to the testimony of only one witness, interviewee or speaker.
- Extraneous — Redaction of extraneous materials, such as irrelevant, out of date or unconfirmable citations.
- Newsroom Magazine is an online publication whose content is packaged, organized and displayed specifically for online access.
- Content obtained from, or whose original source was created for physical print media is altered to make it most easily read and used in electronic format.
Date Of Origination
- Newsroom Magazine routinely inserts a date at the top of every government published article, story or document where the governmental source document or materials fail to include or provide date information.
Publication Appearance Considerations
- We reformat government documents to fit Newsroom Magazine technical requirements including, where required, elimination, resizing or relocation of images and/or and or other graphic embellishment and/or alternative placement of headlines and/or header information to make the materials more easily read.
- We adjust graphical information, or tabular data to a standardized appearance model that gives our content a consistent appearance for easier reading and better understanding.
