How to Find and Support Trustworthy Journalism

Supporting and finding reliable and trustworthy journalism is possible. Here are some tips on how to go about it.

Josh Stearns

If you are hungry for news you can trust, journalism that helps you make decisions about your community, reporting that holds power to account, then this is for you. This is my personal advice for people who want to support journalism that matters. It is just a starting point, it is not comprehensive, and it’ll become stronger and more useful if you add your ideas to it. Use the comments to add your list of newsrooms you subscribe to and support.

Now more than ever, it is important to our democracy that we seek out and support good journalism. Every person is going to construct their media diet differently, so any list I create will be incomplete. My goal here is to provide a framework for you to find the news that will challenge, inspire, inform and engage you.

  1. What real news is and what it isn’t…tricky stuff. I don’t think the government should get involved in that, just my personal take. If I see something I know is categorically false in my Facebook or Twitter feeds, it’s gone. The problem, I think, is there’s a lot of “gray area” out there, stuff that’s kinda sorta true, kinda sorta false.
