We transparently document our development processes in our Build Democracy columns, as part of our central commitment to strengthening society through journalism. We are committed to reporting in ways that utilize participatory and solutions-oriented journalism.
Building an award-winning, community-changing free and independent local news service will require all of us to get involved. Are you with me?
We publish our news free, as a public service, but that doesn’t mean it’s free to produce.
In this Building Democracy column we’re sharing the strategies that are shaping our coverage of Redding’s riverfront land development proposal and other news stories. And we’re welcoming your feedback.
True news journalism requires a rigorous assessment of authoritative claims, a healthy skepticism of power, and the inclusion of marginalized voices whose lived experiences shed light on the realities of our social challenges.
