PBS NewsHour -- news not noise.

The PBS NewsHour’s mission — to provide viewers with intelligent, balanced, in-depth reporting and analysis of the most important domestic and international issues of the day — is even more critical today than when the broadcast began more than 40 years ago. The NewsHour team ensures audiences come away with a better understanding of the issues at hand allowing them to draw the most informed conclusions.

The NewsHour receives less than half of its annual funding from public sources. The rest must come from individual support, foundations, and corporations. As careful stewards of all funds entrusted to the program, we are grateful for, and rely upon annual contributions from individuals.

PBS NewsHour Executive Producer, Sara Just:
"There has never been a more important time to support the PBS NewsHour. Support for non-profit journalism is critical to making certain that our brand of objective and carefully researched news and in- depth analysis reaches more citizens. Americans depend on the outlets they trust to provide accurate, civil, objective, and thoughtful reporting, but this type of thorough journalism requires dedicated staff, time, and resources."
