Editorial Comment: Addressing Complaints of Inaccurancy

In response to some recent complaints concerning the accuracy of some of our articles, we, the editors at Obamabeans County Register, would like to reaffirm our commitment to ethical reporting, as exemplified in the New York Times Official Statement on Journalistic Ethics as shown in the lower right hand corner on page 2 of the Times:

“We will faithfully endeavor to print the truth, the whole truth and will not make stuff up, except for the following situations:

  • When the facts disagree with our opinions.
  • When it’s really, really hard to find out what the facts are.”

While we can only hope to reach the high standards of the Times, nevertheless, we will strive to meet this critcal commitment. After all, if it’s good enough for the New York Times, its good enough for us.
