Overview: Excellence in news judgment.
Some things are givens:
- NPR will be on top of the news. We make sure our listeners and online users have the latest information.
- NPR will break news. We take great pride in telling people things they don’t know.
- NPR will explain events. Listeners and online users will come away understanding what’s happening and why.

Those are among the factors that drive our thinking about the stories we do and don’t cover.
