11. Journalism Integrity

Democracy depends on citizens having reliable, accurate facts put in a meaningful context. Journalism does not pursue truth in an absolute or philosophical sense, but it can -and must- pursue it in a practical sense. This “journalistic truth” is a process that begins with the professional discipline of assembling and verifying facts.

AlYunaniya.com respects the scientific principles of journalism in theory and in practice. We draw our values from the literature as well as life experience.

We are independent, impartial and honest. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of due accuracy and impartiality and strive to avoid knowingly and materially misleading our audiences.

We will strive to be honest and open about what we don’t know and avoid unfounded speculation.

We will be fair and open-minded when examining evidence and weighing material facts.

AlYunaniya.com is independent of outside interests, political or commercial pressures, or any personal interests and arrangements that could undermine our editorial integrity.

We think highly of the public interest and the public’s right to know. Also, we will be carrying lots of stories on global affairs as well as on areas around the world, neglected by mainstream media.

We believe in doing our best to inform people and contribute to awareness as regards important developments in Greece, the Arab World, the Mediterranean and elsewhere.

12. Law and Jurisdiction

These Terms of Use will be governed by and construed in accordance with Greek law and any disputes relating to these terms will be subject to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the Greek courts.
