Overview
PBS NewsHour covers a range of issues relevant to all of the Foundation’s grantmaking programs, and remains "the only national TV news program trusted by a majority of Americans." Such institutions are increasingly rare, particularly as the business model for journalism continues to change. The NewsHour’s corporate funders have significantly reduced their underwriting of the program. Thus, the Foundation’s funding—which has been regular since 2001—has proved particularly important in recent years.
