  • 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.
