Problem

Journalism is under attack.

The word "media" has had a polarizing effect and fear, anger, and hate dominate a social media race to the bottom. 

 

​Local newspapers and national media outlets keep shutting down and journalists keep losing their jobs. This is turn leads to less news being reported and published. Traditional news outlets need to adapt.

Opportunity: News Deserts and Changing News Consumption

A news desert is a community, rural or urban, with limited access to credible and comprehensive news and information that feeds democracy at the grassroots level. With the increase in digital news consumption and journalist layoffs, more than 1,300 communities in the U.S. are considered news deserts. This all leads to lack of knowledge not just on an individual but societal level.
