Who We Are:
We serve as the primary media outlet for students of the university.
We are an extension of the Journalism Program and Communications Department at MBU.
We expose students from all majors to real-world opportunities in multi-media online journalism.
- We acknowledge that MBU is a Christ-centered university that recognizes biblical truth as the foundation for all understanding.
What We Believe:
Jesus Christ was the ultimate seeker of truth while on Earth, and He remains the ultimate source of truth.
There are two essential ethical questions before proceeding with any stories: Who will this hurt? Who will this help?
We must follow Jesus’ example in treating people with respect, handling every interview and story in a fair and honest way.
We will always make every possible effort to get the story right.
We value accuracy over speed in every story.
We recognize that a journalist’s value is based on his/her credibility, and that is built on truth and accuracy in reporting.
We seek to cover stories that ultimately make society better.
