Stories on Reporting & Production

Reporters in Oregon, Pennsylvania, Florida, and now Illinois are banding together to share statehouse coverage.
“The dreck is conflicted single-source stories that should not be called journalism but should be PR and advertising drivel, because it is simply taking spoon-feeding in an unquestioning way and fawning over it.”
“The shorter the distance between our neighbors and our news, the stronger our community.”
“We’re trying to be a platform for voices that you wouldn’t ordinarily read in text at the Times.”
“If people have broadband and can access digital news — which is still not a given here in the state — thinking that news can come from a digital outlet is something new to a lot in the state.”
“If it’s half of what we think it could be, then everyone here is going to reach more people with this subject of such critical importance here.”
“Getting things on air will reach the audience you’re looking to reach. Getting things online is important so people can find the work later.”
“The media is in a state of great disruption, but despite all the change, one thing remains the same: fewer women report the news than men.”
“While remixing the stories did not resonate every time, we did see positive results on the group of hard news stories where we altered the storytelling approach.”
