Something New Under the Sun: California Watch Joins the New Media Pantheon

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010
Look out Alta California, ’cause there’s another online media presence in the San Francisco Bay Area.
On the heels of the relatively new Bay Area Blog from the New York Times and the San Francisco Edition of the Wall Street Journal comes California Watch. It’s a joint from Center for Investigative Reporting and it’s a fully operational mothership as of January 2, 2010.
They’re promising “bold new journalism.” La declaracion de la mision:

“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.”

O.K. then.

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!
