On the Colorado Sun’s ethics page, they give an in-depth look at the newsroom’s guiding principles and standards for publication, including anonymous sources, paying for information, and how the newsroom strives for accuracy. The top of the page also shares the organizaton’s mission: “The Colorado Sun is in the business of truth. We seek it, we record it and we present it to the public so that our state — our community — can better understand itself. In this way, we believe we can contribute to a more vibrant, informed and whole Colorado.”
