Michele's List
Building blocks in the emerging local news ecosystem

WSJ report on local news features ML data

The Wall Street Journal produced a terrific data-driven look (paywall) at the state of local news in the United States today. Michele's List contributed the data the project used to show local independent online news organizations that are launching as traditional sources vanish. This is an example of one key purpose of the list - to inform an accurate narrative about local news - one that acknowledges the losses but also provides insights into the progress and challenges of independent news pioneers.
