Newspaper glossary

All news organizations, including the Sky-Hi News, are divided into two departments: advertising and the newsroom. News coverage is created separately from advertising efforts. While newsrooms and advertising staff occasionally collaborate on business initiatives and projects, all news coverage decisions are made by the editor and independently of any revenue-based influence.

Crime reporting guidelines

Typically, the Sky-Hi News will name someone accused of a crime only after they have been formally charged. Suspects will be named before formal charges have been filed in cases of serious alleged crimes.

When a person is named in a crime story, the Sky-Hi News commits to following that case through to its disposition and writing a story on the outcome.
