With polls showing the economy looming as the dominant issue on the minds of Americans this year, the NewsHour and NewsTrust have launched a joint effort to find and promote the most thorough reporting on the complex issues surrounding the financial crisis.
This “news hunt” will continue throughout the week of Oct. 20 at NewsTrust.net and will allow visitors to both submit articles and review other reports. The pieces that the NewsTrust community finds to be the most thorough and informative will appear on their site all week — and next week we will report on the results here at the Vote 2008 blog.
“Our News Hunts have helped tens of thousands of people become more discriminating news consumers this year — empowering them to make more informed decisions as citizens,” Fabrice Florin, NewsTrust founder and executive director, wrote. “By focusing on factual evidence and constructive dialog, we hope NewsTrust can bring Americans closer together — and broaden their perspective about journalism and democracy.”
