 Statement of Purpose for the Formation of a
Citizens Committee for Responsible Journalism 

As citizens of Washington State, we believe our media is failing us. By and large it fails to verify news facts independently; fails to question statements of those in authority; and fails to disclose information we need for democratic self-governance.

Therefore, we support the creation of a
Citizens Committee for Responsible Journalism

to provide a means to seek accountability from our local news media

by establishing dialogue with them;
by offering knowledge that local experts may have;
by monitoring media coverage of critical issues, beginning with Iraq;
and by offering constructive feedback to our media and to our community members.

To add your name as a supporter, send your name, city, and any titles or
organizational affiliation (to be shown "for identification purposes only") to:

If you would like to be added to the list of supporters but prefer to not receive
email updates, let us know. We will not share your contact information with
anyone or make it public. Anytime you wish to be removed, for any reason,
from the list of supporters, we will do so immediately.
