BOR Policy: Right to Respond


by: Karl-Thomas Musselman

Wed Jan 21, 2009 at 08:34 PM CST


I'd like to announce a new policy at Burnt Orange Report which is to be formalized by this post. Inspired by Open Left, and necessary due to our regular commentary on public figures and organizations, I'm announcing our "Right to Respond" Policy.

The "Right to Respond" will be a standing promise on Burnt Orange Report where any Democratic or progressive candidate, campaign, or organization we discuss in a front-page post is granted a front-page post in response. The individual, campaign, or organization should preferably do so through their Burnt Orange Report user account (create one here) so that they may engage in comments on that and future posts that are related to them.

The "Right to Respond" is rooted in our Democratic values of openness and broader participation in politics.  It also recognizes that while we may disagree at times, we support (generally) civil discussion that promotes honest debate.  If you, your campaign, or your organization wishes to formally respond to a front-page article in which you were mentioned, don't hesitate to contact us about posting a response.
