“This organization will decline to endorse any candidate for any political office, whatsoever.  It is in the best interest of the company and to our public to do this. Endorsement of candidates presents a bias to our readers and, thus, calls into question our objectivity when reporting on the news.  We, the founders of this company, pledged amongst ourselves that we would do everything humanly possible to represent ALL sides of a story and to avoid anything that would unfairly bias the news story. The members of this company are all United States citizens and, as such, have the “Right to Free Speech” and are allowed to editorialize  within a news item.  Such an editorial must be delivered from an objective and reasonable standpoint.  Editorials posted separately from news items must be defined as “Editorials.”  Even in the case of an editorial or opinion-editorial, it is still the policy of Vicksburg Daily News, LLC that our members may not deliver an endorsement to any candidate. We exist to serve the citizenry of Vicksburg, Warren County and other out-lying communities.  We will promote the importance of casting ballots, not influence the outcome of ballot counts.”
