Here's practical information on how to navigate the media maze along with links to fact-checkers and other useful sites.

Behind the Story

It's not always obvious to people who aren't journalists why we do the things we do. "Behind The Story" will explain our thinking on stories and news practices at Civil Beat.

What We're Reading

We read a lot of stories about the news business. We'll share articles we think you may like, too.

Civil Beat is supported by readers and donors who believe that news is a public asset that should be shaped and nurtured by the entire community.
