MGTV Programming Policies

Michigan Government Television (MGTV) will use its best efforts:

To provide programming that is fair, accurate, balanced and without regard to partisanship or ideology. MGTV’s coverage is intended to offer viewers access to government deliberations. MGTV’s segments will be unedited;

To provide programming which will be scheduled by the Executive Director in a manner which recognizes the role of timeliness in the value of information. Programming with content which does not lose value through immediacy may be delayed and replayed on a tape delayed basis;

To provide programming and scheduling of telecasts which will reflect a variety of possible subject matter and deliberating bodies. Balance shall also reflect the importance of covering issues of interest to particular geographic areas;

To keep statistics which insure a reasonable representation of the three branches of Michigan government;

To provide programming and scheduling consistent with MGTV’s mission with the understanding that MGTV’s resources are limited. The MGTV Board delegates full authority to the Executive Director in making decisions.
