- Creators of content for MVBC shall endeavor to adhere to professional journalistic standards in their work.
- Content for MVBC should not include:
a. Material that unlawfully invades a person’s right to privacy, as defined by state law.
b. Material that will cause "a material and substantial disruption” of college activities. “Disruption” includes student rioting, unlawful seizures of property, destruction of property, or substantial student participation in a college boycott, sit‐in, walk‐out or other related form of seriously disruptive, physical activity. Material such as racial, religious or ethnic slurs, however distasteful, is not in and of itself disruptive under these guidelines. Material that stimulates heated discussion or debate does not constitute the type of disruption prohibited.
c. Material that is obscene, as defined by state law and this policy.
“Obscenity” is defined as material that meets all three of the following requirements: (a) the average person, applying contemporary community standards, would find that the publication, taken as a whole, appeals to a prurient interest in sex; (b) the publication depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct such as ultimate sexual acts (normal or perverted), masturbation and lewd exhibition of the genitals; and (c) the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political or scientific value. Indecent or vulgar language is not obscene.
d. Libelous material, as defined by state law.
- All produced content should include the following statement:
