Editorial Policy

The Tennessee IMC is committed to the free and open publication of news, information, announcements and stories which are in the spirit of the Independent Media Center Movement.

We reserve the right to edit material for accuracy and to restrict material which is viewed by the editorial collective as hate speech.

Hate speech may include but is not limited to stories which demean an individual on the basis of their sexual orientation, race, gender, religious belief, physical ability, mental health, occupation or country of origin.

If an article is submitted to the newswire which is deemed to be hate speech the editorial collective reserves the right to hold such story from publication until the collective can meet and decided up the publication.

All decisions made by the editorial collective will be made on a consensus basis and where consensus fails on a 3/4 majority vote.

Any person is encouraged to publish on the IMC and members of the editorial collective will attempt to reach out to members of the community for content.

The IMC is especially interested in the voices of the disenfranchised and excluded voices whose ideas and stories are not heard in the mainstream media.
