In an era of ‘fake news and dwindling trust in the media, it’s more important than ever to support quality journalism. And one of the best ways to do that is by supporting non-profit journalism. Here are just a few of the many benefits that non-profit journalism provides.
- Non-profit journalism is unbiased.
Because they don’t have to worry about making a profit, non-profit news organizations can focus on delivering accurate, unbiased news reports. This is especially important in today’s climate of ‘fake news’ and mistrust in the media.
- Non-profit journalism strengthens democracy.
A free and independent press is vital to a functioning democracy, and non-profit journalism helps to ensure that the press remains free from outside influence.
- Non-profit journalism tells stories that matter.
For-profit news organizations are often more interested in stories that will sell ads or generate clicks than they are in stories that are important but might not be as widely read or shared. Non-profit news organizations, on the other hand, can focus on telling the stories that matter most, regardless of their popularity.
- Non-profit journalism creates a more informed public.
A well-informed public is crucial for a functioning democracy, and non-profit journalism plays a vital role in ensuring that people have access to quality information.
- Non-profit journalism builds community.
In an increasingly divided world, it’s more important than ever to support the communities we live in. And by supporting non-profit journalism, we can help to build strong, vibrant communities where people come together to discuss the issues that matter most to them.
Non-profit journalism is important for a variety of reasons; it’s unbiased, it strengthens democracy, it tells stories that matter, it creates a more informed public, and it builds community. So if you’re looking for a way to support quality journalism, consider donating to a non-profit news organization today.
