Our alliance of journalists & citizens strengthens regional & national in-depth reporting on sustainable transition from coal's monoeconomy.
We especially cover the destructive practice of mountaintop removal.
Many areas in Southern Appalachia are covered only occasionally by the national dailies, often with no real feet-on-the-ground understanding of the complexity of local issues. Regional papers providing balanced coverage tend to cover one state, although the problems are endemic.
Citizens often don’t understand the difference between pr, spin and good journalism. We provide a mechanism to crowd source good journalism and critique coverage that is biased or stenographic.
