WNews Is Truthful Honest Respectful  Transparent Investigated  News

The following are guidelines for news development, news sharing and editorial for the WNews Brand and UNews Magazine. These guidelines and standards apply to WNewsNetwork employees (reporters, editors, etc), contact writer and guest reporters/writers. All employees & guest writers must follow these guidelines. Failure to follow through with the standards will include disciplinary actions which can lead up to termination of employment or contract. 


As journalists and reporters, we seek the truth and strive to present a responsible and fair glimpse of the world. The News is our powerful vehicle, and we endeavour to face the public with respect and candour.

Our power must be used responsibly. Our note pages and cameras are tickets into people’s lives, sacred worlds and complex institutions.

Transparency is won through accuracy, compassion, intellectual honesty and an introspective mission to convey complete, contextual views of our world. When we are transparent, we conduct our professional lives as if all our colleagues and our readers are watching over our shoulders.

Our goal is to begin and end each day with a primary obligation to the public’s right to know.

With every ethical scar, we threaten a delicate relationship with readers. Ethical breaches violate hard-earned trust and shatter our credibility.

To properly understand and reflect on the community, we must live thoroughly and wholeheartedly in it. The constant tension of demanding a better society, while still living in it, is an obligation of a passionate and compassionate journalist. We should be independent, without being detached.

Ethics is the constant process of examining and drawing these lines. It is a communal effort, and we should hold each other accountable for the protection of our values. These values must come through a discussion with our conscience, our colleagues and our leaders, both for the public interest and our own professional education.
