Content Guiding Principles
MethodShop is at its core, a news and entertainment organization. Our content must attain the highest quality and strengthen our credibility. We take pride in our craft. Our content is as accurate, fair, and complete as possible. Our content creators conduct their work with honesty and respect, and they strive to be both independent and impartial in their efforts. Our methods are transparent, and we will be accountable for all we do.
We strive to create the best and most accurate content, especially when it comes to our tutorials. Diligent research, testing, and verification are all critical steps in our content creation process. We take great care to ensure that statements are accurate and verified.
MethodShop has no 3rd party owners or organizations pushing secret agendas on us. We are 100% independent and have been since we began operating back in 1996. Our only allegiance is to you, the public, our readers. Any corporate conflicts of interest would risk compromising our credibility. Therefore, we have none.
Additionally, under no circumstances do we skew our content to influence political outcomes. For example, our political articles discuss election advertising, the popularity of politicians on social media, or related news events. These articles are void of right or left opinions.
No one is perfect. Mistakes happen and we don’t let them stand. If our readers inform us of an error, it is corrected immediately. If we get something wrong, we’ll admit it, fix it and disclose the error to our readers.
