In its report, the Knight Commission settled on five democratic values that news providers should promote:
Openness. The information ecology should be maximally available to everyone as a producer and consumer of information and, within the bounds of law, should support the widest possible range of choices for personal lifestyle and civic initiative. Inclusion. The information system should reflect the interests, perspectives and narratives of the entire community; everyone should be able to find information relevant to their needs. Participation. The information system should operate to encourage and support people's productive engagement with information for personal and civic purposes. Empowerment. Individuals should have the opportunity to pursue their talents, dreams and interests. Communities should be able to govern their own affairs successfully, reflecting the needs and values of their members. Common Pursuit of Truth and the Public Interest. People should be able to differentiate what is credible, verifiable and rigorously determined from what is speculative, false or propagandistic. They should also be able to engage with information and each other to develop public decisions that maximize community welfare.
