The Independent Voter Network is dedicated to providing political analysis, unfiltered news, and rational commentary in an effort to elevate the level of our public discourse.
A Platform for Unfiltered News
The purpose of IVN.us is to provide unfiltered political news and policy analysis across the political spectrum. Unlike traditional media outlets and elsewhere in the “blogosphere” where the diversity of viewpoints is often reduced into partisan circles, IVN actively encourages contributors and readers of differing political tendencies to engage in a constructive dialogue. The mission of IVN.us is to raise the level of civil discourse to a place where solutions are more persuasive than talking points, and participation is not conditioned on your party affiliation.
To achieve these objectives, IVN has established four clear Etiquette Guidelines that all editors, contributors, and participants on the Network must respect:
1. No Personal Attacks:
Attack the argument, not the person.
2. No Self-Promotion:
This news platform is for discussing issues. You may purchase an advertisement for promotional purposes.
3. Sources must be Substantiated
Just because someone else said it does not mean its true. The gossip stops here.
4. No Partisan-Based Attacks
If your sentence starts with “Democrats think…” or “All Republicans are…” your article will be rejected.
