A Look Back at the Register and Tribune

Listen to the words of Dennis Ryerson recounting history of Darling’s former home — the Des Moines Register.

Historically, the Register and Tribune have held themselves to high journalistic standards, being guided by their own “Three Commandments” (listed and pictured below).

The Three Commandments Guiding the Register and Tribune

1. We believe in presenting all the news impartially and objectively in the news columns.

2. We believe in expressing our own opinions as persuasively and forcefully as possible, but only on the editorial pages.

3. We believe in giving our readers the opinions of other competent writers representing all sides of controversial issues in order that our readers may form their own judgments.
