What We Believe:

The Mod is neither Republican nor Democrat but is firmly behind the belief that what is good for the community needs to be hailed and things that don't need to be called out regardless of politics and social bent. Our readers can depend on our reliability, accuracy, and above all, our objectivity.

ChatGPT & Other AI:

At The Maricopa Moderator, we are committed to providing the highest quality content, created by a trusted group of human writers, reporters, and editors with our audience in mind. It is against our guidelines to publish automatically generated content that has been written by AI (artificial intelligence) tools such as ChatGPT.

Diversity & Inclusion:

The Maricopa Moderator is committed to taking visible, measurable steps to combat racism, sexism, and other biases in the media. Our definition of diversity, and the areas in which we seek to increase inclusivity and representation, include race, culture, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, body type, and ability.

We commit to greater representation in our visual assets, working to ensure a broad array of people and perspectives are represented on social media, our homepage, within our articles, and in any additional media. With the help of the Anti-Bias Review Board, we will continue to do ongoing audits of the language we use to ensure it is fair, accurate, and inclusive.

And we will ask readers to hold us accountable. True progress comes with accountability, and we hope readers will partner with us on our mission to tell these stories well and accurately. Please feel free to send questions, comments, or suggestions to
