The Society of Professional Journalists wants to restore the public’s faith in the press by equipping the public with tools to evaluate all forms of journalism and we want to increase the dialogue between the public and the press. SPJ feels that the more the public understands how and why journalists do their jobs, the more likely they are to understand the valuable role the press plays in democracy.
