With journalism entrepreneurs launching local news startups at a rapid pace, the local news landscape is evolving and so are the rules of the road guiding ethical decisions.

Site publishers navigate new kinds of critical decisions daily. This guide examines a number of them. You can click to any topic in any order. Or, you can cruise through the Table of Contents.
On every page you'll find a box that says, "Share your story." We invite you to weigh in with an ethical problem you faced and your solution. Your participation will help inform a work in progress.

Christie "woke up" at that moment.
Christie has given a voice to something I've been saying here on FR for a while: that local journalists can be and often ARE just as biased as most national networks

I thought you didn't like bloggers. :p
They’re not “low infomation voters”... instead, they are ignorant, lazy, apathetic individuals who are too stupid or indifferent to take an interest in educating themselves about the policies, laws, politicians, and other societal ills that adversely impact not only their life, but those of their spouse and children. Idiots.
