Editorial Independence Policy

We subscribe to standards of editorial independence adopted by the Institute for Nonprofit News:

Our organization retains full authority over editorial content to protect the best journalistic and business interests of our organization. We maintain a firewall between news coverage decisions and sources of all revenue. Acceptance of financial support does not constitute implied or actual endorsement of donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals and organizations for the general support of our activities, but our news judgments are made independently and not on the basis of donor support.

Our organization may consider donations to support the coverage of particular topics, but our organization maintains editorial control of the coverage. We will cede no right of review or influence of editorial content, nor of unauthorized distribution of editorial content.

Once we are approved as a nonprofit entity (our application is being submitted later this year), our organization will make public all donors who give a total of $5,000 or more per year. We will accept anonymous donations for general support only if it is clear that sufficient safeguards have been put into place that the expenditure of that donation is made independently by our organization and in compliance with INN’s Membership Standards.

Donor & Financial Transparency

We are committed to transparency in every aspect of funding our organization.

Accepting financial support does not mean we endorse donors or their products, services or opinions.

We accept gifts, grants and sponsorships from individuals, organizations and foundations to help with our general operations, coverage of specific topics and special projects. As a prospective 501(c)(3) nonprofit that operates as a public trust, we will not pay certain taxes if approved for nonprofit status. We may receive funds from standard government programs offered to nonprofits or similar businesses.

Our news judgments are made independently – not based on or influenced by donors or any revenue source. We do not give supporters the rights to assign, review or edit content.

As a nonprofit, we will make public all revenue sources and donors who give $5,000 or more per year. As a news nonprofit, we avoid accepting charitable donations from anonymous sources, government entities, political parties, elected officials or candidates seeking public office. We will not accept donations from sources who, deemed by our board of directors, present a conflict of interest with our work or compromise our independence.

Oct. 16, 1997, a date which I have been looking forward to for decades, will be here soon. That’s the date the fictional Robinson family became “Lost In Space” on board their spaceship, the Jupiter 2.

What does this have to do with Woodrow? Previous generations of Wildcats were shaped by the Roaring ‘20s, the Great Depression and World War II. As the Atomic Age juxtaposed the Jet Age and segued into the Space Age, the expectations and hopes of my generation were shaped.

Would we be wiped out by the Commies, or would we all unite in the future, a la “Star Trek,” after World War III?

Although the Red Menace has been reduced, we still have a ways to go in interstellar travel. Earlier this year, I finally realized my dream of watching a space shuttle launch in person at Cape Canaveral. It was awesome.

The recent rendezvous of the Hale-Bopp Comet and the Surveyor and Pathfinder missions to Mars have thrust our very own Richard Berendzen, ’56, to stardom as the world’s authority on outer space.

“I believe the people who will travel to Mars are alive today, possibly in high school,” he said on a recent edition of “Nightline.”

My senses tell me it will be a Wildcat to reach the Red Planet first.
