Amid concern about the declining credibility of journalists, the debate over the viability of news councils as a form of non-governmental media accountability has revived. Over the past several years, Silha Center researchers Bill Babcock, Genelle Belmas, and Jennifer Lambe have conducted a systematic evaluation of 25 years of determinations by the Minnesota News Council (MNC). Through analysis of the records of MNC hearings, we have gained insight into the news council model of media accountability.
