By providing this fundamental public service, we ultimately help build a better New Jersey for this generation and the next. Your support of local journalism really matters.

How We Work

  • Our editors, reporters and photojournalists operate with highest ethical standards.
  • We take great pains to assure that our reporting is accurate and promptly correct any errors of fact.
  • Our journalists report independently and strive for fairness.
  • They seek to balance various and conflicting points of view and eliminate partisan bias from their reporting.
  • In print and online, the NJB reports the complete, accurate truth as best we can in clear and concise language.
  • We treat people we write about fairly and openly. We work hard to avoid surprising anyone about what they may read about themselves in the NJB.
  • We tread lightly into someone’s personal life and reveal no more than is absolutely necessary.
  • We don’t pay sources for tips or story subjects for interviews. We don’t trade favorable coverage for any consideration including access.
  • Our journalists reveal their affiliation with the NJB when reporting.
