Unparalleled local news content
Sensational, biased and often inaccurate reporting is taking place in nearly every news outlet, local or otherwise. 70% of Americans do not trust the news media.
That’s why Local Voice established six foundational tenets for our 100% local news initiative:
- No editorials/columns
- No letters to the editor
- Names in the news are spelled correctly
- No endorsement of political candidates
- Quotes in stories will be both accurate and in context
- Stories covering issues must allow readers to make an independent decision
The rate of adoption by each community of our local publications, aided by the viral push of newsmakers who recognized our commitment to accuracy, has reinforced the efficacy of the model.
