The Community Reporting Alliance at work

    The Community Reporting Alliance this month launched an effort to fund its Media Restoration Project. The project seeks to restore news to places where newspapers and other news sources have disappeared in the recent media upheaval, like Greenville, N.Y., where the Greenville Press folded in February 2010. “In the restoration project, we’re seeking to work with communities to re-establish news in places that are without local news coverage at very basic levels. These are places where on-the-ground beat coverage of school and town boards is just not happening. These are places where the community’s connection to basic information has been broken,” said Barbara Gref, executive director of the nonprofit group.
