Look out Alta California, ’cause there’s another online media presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
“California Watch, a nonprofit and independent investigative reporting team, exposes injustice, waste, mismanagement, wrongdoing, questionable practices, and corruption so that those responsible can be held to account and so the public can be armed with the information needed to debate solutions and spark change.”
Question: Will students play a role in the reporting? Oh yes. What will a bunch of college kids from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism and the Sacramento State University (aka CSU Sacramento) come up with?
Expect good things.
Bon courage, California Watch!
