Southerner Ad Policy
The publication staff has the right to reject, edit, or cancel any advertisement at any time. If a business pays for advertising in advance of publication and the staff decides to cancel the advertising, money will be refunded for remaining ads. Advertising shall be free of statements, illustrations or implications that are offensive to good taste or public decency based on the opinion of the staff. Advertising shall offer merchandise or service on its merit, and refrain from attacking competitors unfairly or disparaging their products services or methods of doing business. The staff will not accept advertising for products or groups that are racist, sexist, illegal for all high school students, or violates other standard journalistic principles (libel, obscenity, invasion of privacy, disruption). Ads which the staff accept are not an endorsement from the staff, the advisor, the administration, or the Minneapolis Public Schools.
