The Organization of News Ombudsmen and Standards Editors

Integrity, Transparency, Accountability.

ONO is the international organization that represents ombudsmen, readers’ editors and standards editors in print, broadcast and digital newsrooms around the world. We are dedicated to protecting and enhancing quality journalism by encouraging respectful and truthful discourse about journalism’s practices and purposes.

“One thing all ombudsmen share: a powerful commitment to making journalism better by letting the public inside the process of information gathering, editing and distribution. There can be no finer goal” – Jeffrey Dvorkin, “The Modern News Ombudsman: A User’s Guide”
