Latest print issue of SF Public Press hits the streets

The fourth print edition of the SF Public Press is out, a news collaboration of several nonprofit organizations including KQED, KALW-FM and California Watch/Center for Investigative Reporting. In the feature article, reporters examine the city's budgeting process, exploring “participatory budgeting,” the use of the Internet to promote transparency and the "unfulfilled promise" for government audits to identify and eliminate millions of dollars in waste. SF Public Press also publishes new content daily online. It says it "aims to do for print and Web journalism what public broadcasting has done for radio and television."

Thanks for the note, Dru, and for paying attention to new public media organizations that fall outside the traditional public broadcasting frame. Our focus is to fill in the gaps in the shrinking local commercial press in San Francisco, and we envision that the best way to do that is through a professional noncommercial model that supports depth and context.
