NPR publishes internal newsroom policies and ethics guidelines

NPR published a searchable database of Standards & Practices Editor Mark Memmott’s columns about newsroom policies. The columns expand on topics from how reporters should ask sources their pronoun preferences to how corrections should be handled. Having these published online not only helps uphold newsroom standards internally but also demonstrates transparency to their audience. This work was done independently from Trusting News but embodies the work we do.

Project manager Mollie Muchna (she/her) has spent the last 10 years working in audience and engagement journalism in local newsrooms across the Southwest. She lives in Tucson, Arizona, where she is also an adjunct professor at the University of Arizona’s School of Journalism. She can be reached at and on Twitter @molliemuchna.
