We work to provide transparency in every thing we do. We show our work, cite sources of data, credit our news partners and work to share credible information on social media and other platforms and through partners.
Local story datelines indicate where the story originated from and if the reporter or key information came directly from an event or sources at that location. Generally, a dateline will mean a reporter was present but can mean the sources for the story were there. If a broader story is written from sources in a widely separated area, no dateline will be used.
News partners, policy on bylines
The Current believes in reaching as many people as we can with credible information to make daily decisions for navigating their worlds. Each day we share work we find from trusted nonprofit news organizations with the same goal in Georgia, as well as several across the South and the world. Here are brief introductions to some of our journalism partners in news and information.
We credit every story we publish to a reporter and original news source, and we add biographical information where available from the source.
The Current uses social media platforms as part of our goal to reach as many people as possible with credible information. We want our channels to be a space where members of the community can engage in respectful dialogue and commentary related to news and information. We support diversity of opinion, presuming that opinion is expressed in a constructive manner. We reserve the right to hide or remove comments we believe go against these community guidelines and may block users who consistently abuse these rules. Moderation decisions are subjective, but we will make them as diligently and consistently as possible.
