The torrent of false information and efforts to undermine the credibility of journalism and the news media as democratic institutions make journalistic commitments to accurate reporting more crucial and more challenging than ever before.

All news is biased to some extent, and journalism would serve the public better by openly examining those biases rather than denying them.
