Walker Report Ground Rules
Walker Report receives lots of requests to post upcoming political events as well as other kinds of events and if possible we cover them well. We do have a few rules we live by. A candidate can promote their campaign, but we don't post comments derogatory of their opponent. Also we don't post photos with people with eyes closed, open mouth unless they hold a microphone, or it is in context. We don't promote alcohol or cigarettes or unflattering photos. We are a family blog and adhere to those expectations. Walker Report Editor Steve Walker
