The Nevada News Bureau (NNB) is an independent, non-partisan news service covering government and politics in Nevada. We operate as a non-profit organization and have a three member Board of Directors.
NNB has a physical office in Henderson. Our staff lives and works in either Carson City or Las Vegas.
We endorse the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists. We do not advocate for or against candidates or legislation, and we strive to provide fair and accurate reporting, including:
– Testing the accuracy of information from all sources, exercising care to avoid inadvertent error and correcting errors quickly.
– Diligently seeking out subjects of news stories to give them the opportunity to explain themselves and/or respond to allegations of wrongdoing.
– Identifying sources whenever feasible.
– Making certain that headlines, news teases, photos, video, audio, graphics, sound bites and quotations do not misrepresent, oversimplify or highlight incidents out of context.
– Avoiding oversimplification and/or stereotyping by race, gender, age, religion, ethnicity, geography, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or social status.
– Supporting the open, public exchange of different views.
– Avoiding conflicts of interest, real or perceived.
– Remaining free of associations and activities that may compromise integrity or damage credibility.
– Refusing gifts, favors, fees, free travel and special treatment, and shunning secondary employment, political involvement, public office and/or service in community organizations if they compromise journalistic integrity.
– Denying favored treatment to special interests and resisting their pressure to influence news coverage.
– Disclosing unavoidable conflicts.
NNB is a proud member of the Nevada Press Association as well as Investigative Reporters and Editors and the Society of Professional Journalists. Our staff is credentialed by the Nevada Legislative Counsel Bureau.
Our editor, Elizabeth Crum, regularly speaks at Nevada media and political events as well as organizing and/or participating in workshops, training classes and discussion panels on journalism and ethics, citizen-journalism, non-profit journalism, blogging and social media.
