CODE OF ETHICS AND PROFESSIONALISM, LANDMARK NEWSPAPERS

Our news reports should never be influenced by the private interests of the owners or of any other group. Our editorials should exhibit vigor and courage, always respectful of contrary opinion, never tailored to the whims of the editor or publisher.

There are no sacred cows. No territory of legitimate public interest is off limits to fair and competent reporting and comments.

THE DUTY OF LANDMARK NEWSPAPERS
Frank Batten
ACCURACY

"The first priority of Landmark newspapers is to present a faithful and accurate picture
of the life of their communities...."

Business conflicts

* Staff members may not have financial investments in companies they cover.

* Investments, loans or other outside business activities that could conflict with the newspaper's ability to report news must be avoided.

* Use of inside knowledge for personal gain is prohibited.
