The mission of the California Examiner is to help readers stay informed about the ever-changing entertainment and gaming industry while actively fighting fake news.
These policies are meant to guide California Examiner journalism as we deliver news and information in an ever-changing entertainment media environment.
Conflict of Interest
California Examiner avoids conflicts of interest wherever and whenever possible. If the content is published where a conflict of interest might exist, the content will include a disclaimer.
All California Examiner editors strive for fairness in their reporting. Fairness means:
- not intentionally excluding important facts.
- including relevant information.
- not misleading or deceiving the reader.
- allowing the inclusion of comments from individuals or organizations that are the subject of assertions or claims in a story.
All “op-ed” stories will be clearly labeled as such. Occasionally, an editor may provide their opinion at the end of a story. When and if that occurs, it will be clearly labeled as the editor’s opinion through a sub-heading like, “California Examiner’s Take/Recommendation” or “Author’s Opinion”.
For previews and reviews, we always honor embargoes and save spoilers for when we have permission to post – or after release. We try to keep sensitive spoilers out of headlines and images until a sufficient amount of time has passed to ensure readers are not exposed to other info they are not looking for. If there are spoilers and publication will occur during the release window, we will always include a spoiler warning at the top of the article.
