MacArthur supports the production and distribution of news and documentary programs that help inform the American public about important domestic and international current affairs and policy issues.

MacArthur’s journalism program supports in-depth, impactful public interest journalism, mostly conducted by nonprofit organizations. The work is based on a premise that journalism plays an important role in how Americans acquire information and form opinions, what they know and understand about their community and world, the choices and decisions they make, and whether and how they exercise their responsibility as citizens.
