The New Daily abides by the principles of the MEAA Code of Ethics in a commitment to honesty, fairness and independence in our journalism. We aim to get our facts straight. In the event of an error occurring which requires correction, we undertake to correct it at the first opportunity. In the case of other material where we agree a mistake has occurred on our part, the offending material will be removed and an appropriate acknowledgement will be published.
The New Daily will adhere to the highest standards of accuracy, fairness, and balance. It will provide honest, independent and impartial journalism: the stories will reflect the facts and the headlines will reflect the stories.
Our journalists and editors will at all times act ethically and report fairly, honestly and objectively. They will be required to embrace the industry code of ethics (attached) and gather and report all sides of the story with the highest standards of accuracy and balance.
If The New Daily makes a mistake it will correct the error at the earliest opportunity; if it inadvertently presents an unbalanced account it will seek to redress this at the earliest opportunity also.
The New Daily will not publish editorials and will not have a policy position on issues.
Ultimately, The New Daily will build its reputation on trust, truth, impartiality and integrity. We will be rigorous in our search for the facts and present them unvarnished. We will respect privacy and be sensitive to issues of race, gender, religion, nationality, colour, country of origin, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, illness and age.
