Radio Today believes in free speech. However, we don’t believe in abuse of freedom of expression – this also applies to our directors, employees and you as contributors.
Our policies around this are:
- All opinion-based content pieces published on Radio Today will always identify the author. Should you have an alternate perspective, we are always prepared to offer a right of reply.
- Radio Today operates a ‘pre-moderation’ policy regarding comments – not done to control the conversation, but rather to ensure we do not place ourselves at legal risk.
- We will not publish comments that, in our view, put us in such a situation. Furthermore, we reserve the right to edit comments to remove any risk.
- Radio Today will not publish comments that take a needlessly aggressive position. Our view is that while conversation can sometimes be heated and inspire robust debate, blatant abuse of another person is not acceptable.
- When you place a comment, you will have the option to remain anonymous – this is to allow you to contribute to a conversation without concern of damaging your present, or potential, employment situation should you believe expressing your opinion may do. We would, of course, prefer that you put your name to your opinion.
- Any comments that are critical of an individual in a personal or overtly aggressive way are unlikely to be deemed suitable for publication, however, if they are regarded as suitable, they will only be published when the person commenting has put their name to the comment.
In all instances above, the publisher’s decision is final.
