ABOUT THIS SERIES
Journalism created with care and integrity is a cornerstone of a healthy, vibrant democracy. And it works best when it’s transparent. When citizens understand how their news is produced and who is producing it, they’re more likely to trust what’s reported, make informed decisions and engage in a healthy dialogue on issues that matter.
We examine the newspaper landscape in Maine, how the loss of local reporting is a growing civic crisis, and the most trusted local journalists across Maine.
