Free Press

The free press is a cornerstone of democracy.
People have a need to know.
Journalists have a right to tell.
Finding the facts can be difficult.
Reporting the story can be dangerous.
Freedom includes the right to be outrageous.
Responsibility includes the duty to be fair.
News is history in the making.
Journalists provide the first draft of history.
A free press, at its best, reveals the truth.
