How we develop print and online partners
Our longest partnerships in publishing to-date are PBS FRONTLINE and The Washington Post.
We also have co-published and distributed our stories WAMU-FM, Reveal News, the New Yorker, “ABC World News Tonight,” Politico, the Philadelphia Inquirer, McClatchy, Mother Jones magazine, New America Media and the Columbia Journalism Review (CJR).
Sometimes we share the reporting process, such as our summer 2011 partnership with San Francisco-based New America Media on the foreclosure crisis, which looked at particularly hard-hit ethnic communities in northern California and in Maryland’s Prince George’s county, the country’s largest majority-minority county. Our stories were translated into three languages and distributed to ethnic press outlets in print as well as online.
Our March 2012 final story in a series on the continuing income disparity in broadband usage nationwide led us to a partnership with members of the Institute for Nonprofit News. For this, we customized maps and data for smaller sites with fewer staff and resources, including The Lens in New Orleans.
