OJR, an online journalism publication put together by USC and UC Berkeley, published a story featuring us yesterday. Here’s a snippet:
SAN DIEGO — The 10 reporters, editors and photographers working out of a small office on a former military base here represent some of journalism’s brightest hopes.
The nearly four-year-old website they work for, the nonprofit Voice of San Diego, is doing some of the best and liveliest muckraking reporting of any Web-only news staff in the country.
Mostly former newspaper reporters, the Voice’s staffers have rattled off a string of exposes that has grabbed the attention of the city’s power structure. They think their site will prove not only that local journalism can thrive on the Web, but that their enterprise can grow many times over as mainstream media continue to decline.
