Truth


Principle


We do our best to report the truth in as much complexity, diversity and clarity as possible.

Inherent in that approach is accuracy, with a first allegiance to the facts as opposed to any particular point of view.

Standard

We report and edit with truth as our most important consideration, and correct our failures to meet that standard as quickly and as fully as possible

Practice

We provide detailed attribution of ideas and language not original to us. We link as thoroughly as possible to sources that we’ve used to assemble our journalism and that we believe will be useful to consumers in learning more about relevant topics.

As much as we strive to be as independent as possible (with a first allegiance to truth), we bend over backwards to be transparent about our biases and/or vested interests whenever relevant.
