A number of people have asked me for a copy of our statement core values since my presentation at the inaugural meeting of America's Newspapers. Download a copy here.
The Seaton family from Manhattan, Kan., has adopted this exact statement in all 10 of their daily newspapers. It is also the exact same core value statement adopted by the journalism school at the University of North Carolina.
You are welcome to use this statement in your own newspaper(s), or any of your own variation.
If you adopt a statement of core values, I would appreciate your sending an email to the America's Newspapers office to let us know you did and a copy of your statement if different from ours. I believe adopting a statement like this can help improve our relationship with our readers as a trusted and professional source on news.
Coverage of Walter Hussman's iPad strategy and the success being seen to date will be contained in the annual meeting report to be published next month.
