National Newspapers of Record

"When it comes down to accuracy, there are a number of national newspapers in most countries that are well-staffed with reporters and have an editorial process that places a premium on accuracy. These papers are sometimes referred to as “newspapers of record.” [1] “National newspapers of record” are distinguished in two ways:

  1. They are rigorous, showing attention to detail and having accountability in their editorial processes.
  2. They have a truly national view and attempt to be the best possible record of what happened in the nation (not just a region) on a given day."
