ABOUT US



My Dutch Times is a multi-platform news organization that makes things happen. We inform, connect, investigate, report and effect change.
The purpose of My Dutch Times is to keep our customers informed about what matters most to them, to help make their life, community, country and world better. Our mission is to deliver trusted news, information and content on all platforms.
We focus public attention on injustices of all kinds and on reforms designed to correct them. We are the news organization people turn to when they need help; when they want to see the scales balanced, wrongs righted; when they want powerful people held to account. 

RESPONSIBILITY

My Dutch Times has responsibilities to its customers, its clients, its  shareholders and its employees. But the operation of a news organization is, above all, a public trust, no less binding because it is not formally conferred. Our overriding responsibility is to the democratic society.
Freedom of expression and of the press must be defended against encroachment from any quarter, public or private. Journalists must ensure that the public’s business is conducted in public. They must be vigilant against all who would exploit the press for selfish purposes.
Journalists who abuse the power of their professional roles for selfish motives or unworthy purposes are faithless to that public trust.

ACCURACY AND TRUTH


Good faith with the reader is the foundation of ethical and excellent journalism. That good faith rests primarily on the reader’s confidence that what we print is correct. Every effort must be made to ensure that everything published in the MDT is accurate, is presented in context, and that all significant sides are presented fairly.
Journalistic integrity demands that significant errors of fact, as well as errors of omission, should be corrected promptly and as prominently and transparently as warranted.
