HOW YOUR DONATIONS HELP Your donations give us the ability to add more resources, time and energy to the areas we currently cover. This includes technology to support our on-line news production and distribution operation, the addition of new sections such as a calendar and daily news briefs, and the hiring of new reporters.
WHAT WE WILL DO CalCoastNews.com will continue to focus on truly important stories. Stories with a public interest. By investigating unsavory business and government practices, we will stimulate positive change. We are non-partisan and adhere to the strictest journalism ethics and standards. Our hope, over time and once the site is expanded and a brand built, is that advertising will become a source of sustainable funding.
WHY NOW Investigative journalism is at an impasse. Today’s newspapers are suffering from time and budget constraints. As a result of numerous layoffs and budget cuts, investigative reporting has been squeezed down, and in some cases out. The watchdog function of the media is increasingly perceived as a thing of the past. This is a time when new models of journalism are being created to help maintain the media’s important watchdog function. The trend is clear: on-line journalism is the future. However, the bulk of news sources on the Web rely on unoriginal news and opinion. As it evolves, CalCoastNews.com will provide readers with a comprehensive calendar, news briefs and features as well as investigative news.
