  News organizations are supposed to provide their audiences with journalism that is not only timely, but fair and accurate as well. But many media outlets, including NPR, often face skepticism about their reporting. News should be factual, reporters should get the details right. Mistakes are made, and sometimes some people may feel a story is biased or inaccurate.
