We want to hear what you think and want to engage with you. Our ask is that you treat others with respect, even if you disagree with them. No harassment, name-calling, or hate speech.

Any content that violates our standards will be removed from this page. We believe in free speech, with that comes responsibility.

Our Senior Vice President and General Manager Tanya Vea weighed in on our amplified efforts to improve our social media communities.

In addition to informing, our mission as trusted voices is also to build up, connect, and celebrate the people we serve.

Those people are you. A wide-ranging, diverse community who make up our audiences. Your voice matters to us. Your stories are our stories. As local journalists, who also live alongside you, we take seriously our commitment to make our collective community a better, more informed place.

Recently we’ve grown concerned with the tone of the conversation happening on our social media channels. While we understand and respect that difficult issues often require difficult conversations, too often the comments are veering away from just disagreement to disrespectful, and crossing the line into personal attacks on fellow commenters or people who are included in news coverage.

We believe in free speech, our business depends on it. And with that right comes responsibility.

We want to hear what you think and we want to engage with you. Our request is that when you are commenting on our pages you treat others with respect, even if you disagree with them. No harassment, name calling, or hate speech. Any content that violates our standards will be removed from our pages.

We want our sites to be a welcoming place for discussion from a wide variety of viewpoints. Thank you for helping us in this effort.

The following will not be tolerated on our platforms:

  • Hate speech
    • defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “public speech that expresses hate or encourages violence towards a person or group based on something such as race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation”.
  • Personal attacks
  • Name calling
  • Harassment
  • Foul language
  • Unsubstantiated information
    • not supported or proven by evidence.
  • Fake accounts
  • Spam
