Happs Strives To Maintain Journalistic Integrity in Everything We Do

  • Accuracy Comes First

    Anyone who streams with Happs must strive to be accurate, fair, and thorough in their reporting. A trained journalist will play a part in all Happs broadcasts either as a producer, contributor, or as a host.

  • We Must Strive For The Truth

    Happs must strive to tell the truth as nearly as the truth can possibly be told. As part of telling the truth, Happs contributors must disclose any potential conflicts of interest, and be transparent about any bias we may have. Conflicts of interest can include reporting on subjects to which you have a personal connection or on causes to which you have donated money or time.

  • Everyone Is Treated Fairly

    Every single subject, whether a primary or secondary character on our streams, must be treated fairly. Happs encourages the civil exchange of opinions, no matter how in opposition various opinions are, and will not condone any name calling or indecent behavior.
