About KLRN News

The mission of KLRN News is to inform the public and supplement the work being done by existing media outlets by using explanatory journalism to cover the big issues. Our goal is to provide the region with an objective and deep source of information to help the public make informed decisions.

We support our enterprise through a mix of generous members, purpose-driven foundations, and sponsorships.

Editorial Policy/Funding

We are funded by grants, gifts and memberships from nonprofits, individuals, corporations and foundations. We recognize the possibility that those who fund any medium may seek to influence its content. Therefore, we have instituted policies to ensure that our practices and content conform to common journalistic standards. As with any other objective news medium, there is a "wall" between the news and fundraising functions. Our producers and editors practice attribution, fairness and balance. All supporters are given the explicit understanding that editorial content and control is entirely under the authority of the KLRN News Director.

17 U.S. Code § 107 - Limitations on exclusive rights: Fair use

Current through Pub. L. 114-19. (See Public Laws for the current Congress.)

Notwithstanding the provisions of sections 106 and 106A, the fair use of a copyrighted work, including such use by reproduction in copies or phonorecords or by any other means specified by that section, for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research, is not an infringement of copyright. In determining whether the use made of a work in any particular case is a fair use the factors to be considered shall include —

(1) the purpose and character of the use, including whether such use is of a commercial nature or is for nonprofit educational purposes;

(2) the nature of the copyrighted work;

(3) the amount and substantiality of the portion used in relation to the copyrighted work as a whole; and

(4) the effect of the use upon the potential market for or value of the copyrighted work.

The fact that a work is unpublished shall not itself bar a finding of fair use if such finding is made upon consideration of all the above factors.
