The Washington Post
The Washington Post is one of the most recognized
sources of news in the world. Eugene Meyer, the Post's founder,
spoke of seven prinicples that would make the Post work. They
are as follows:
The first mission of a newspaper is to tell
the truth as nearly as the truth can be ascertained.
The newspaper shall tell ALL the truth so far as it can learn
it, concerning the important affairs of America and the world.
As a disseminator of news, the paper shall observe the decencies
that are obligatory upon a private gentleman.
What it prints shall be fit reading for the young as well as
The newspaper's duty is to its readers and to the public at
large, and not to the private interests of its owners.
In the pursuit of truth, the newspaper shall be prepared to
make sacrifices of its material fortunes, if such a course be
necessary for the public good.
The newspaper shall not be the ally of any special interest,
but shall be fair and free and wholesome in its outlook on public
affairs and public men.
