Since November, the Spring and Klein edition of Community Impact Newspaper has been involved in the Trusting News Project, a Reynolds Journalism Institute endeavor that aims to improve communication between media outlets and readers.
As part of this project, Community Impact Newspaper has provided additional context for some of our stories in our social media posts as well as several explanatory briefs on our own corporate website, www.communityimpact.com. This process has ranged from introducing an article with a couple of sentences about how we conducted research to a detailed explanation of how we go about finding and selecting businesses for our monthly Impacts section.
Our goals as part of the project are to be accessible to our readers, explain our reporting process and to demonstrate balanced coverage. This includes quickly responding to reader inquiries.
If you have any questions about the project, please contact [email protected].
