Filed here are examples of favorable or neutral coverage given, without disclosure, to people who are proven or strongly suspected to have a personal relationship with the writer, creating an appearance of conflict of interest.
Subjects who are less notable or who have been involved in other conflicts of interest might be subject to higher scrutiny.
Some conflicts of interest may be grouped together in an individual emblem at DeepFreeze’s discretion.
Will be marked as “possible” when discussing conflicts of interest that are made apparent only due to a disclosure elsewhere, on the assumption that the omitted disclosure might be a slip or assumed to be implied due to the previous one.
Will be marked as “amended” when disclosure is added after the issue is publicly called out.
In case of personal relationships that also involve professional or financial ties, a Corruption emblem will usually be assigned instead.
