Description:

Cable News

Mission:

“A public service created by the American cable industry:

  • To provide C-SPAN’s audience access to the live gavel-to-gavel proceedings of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate, and to other forums where public policy is discussed, debated and decided — all without editing, commentary or analysis and with a balanced presentation of points of view;
  • To provide elected and appointed officials and others who would influence public policy a direct conduit to the audience without filtering or otherwise distorting their points of view;
  • To provide the audience, though the call-in program, direct access to elected officials, other decision makers and journalists on a frequent and open basis; and
  • To employ production values that accurately convey the business of government rather than distract from it; and to conduct all other aspects of its operations consistent with these principles.”
