New year, new look, new reporters

on August 25, 2012

Richmond Confidential ushers in its fourth year with a new web design, and 18 new reporters. Our first-year students from the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley hail from California, Colorado, Tennessee, Alaska, Texas, New York, Singapore and Zimbabwe. As always, we depend on you to help them understand your community.  Comment on their stories, correct us if we make a mistake, follow us here or on our Facebook page. We want to continue to earn your trust, story by story, covering Richmond as professionally and as creatively as we can.  We  can’t do that without your insight, your knowledge and your cooperation.

    Still a communist leaning “news” outlet…

      I will probably regret asking, but… Explain? Include examples if you are able, please.

      Jason, that’s a strong statement to make, “communist leaning “news” outlet…” Ouch! clarify or retract; statements like these divide people and increase the growth of ignorance with stupidity! I may not agree with liberal media outlets, but calling a media “communist”, that’s a strong accusation!

    Thank you for doing what you do!

    There’s something terribly wrong with our news gathering outlets when we get more information from an online “newspaper” from a graduate school than we do from the “professional” news outlets.

    My only caution is to be sure you know who you’re getting your information from and try to learn what agenda they’re trying to push. Verify your information as much as possible so you don’t end up being a shill for the many community activists roaming our streets.

    Lastly, try to be objective and strive to make your stories more like actual news stories and less like editorials pushing your own positions.

    Welcome to Richmond. We’re glad to have you.

    Please try to report honestly ALL the news. Don’t cave to the message that it is your “mission” to only report “positive” things about Richmond. Your mission is to leave opinion out of it and report what happened fairly.

Richmond Confidential welcomes comments from our readers, but we ask users to keep all discussion civil and on-topic. Comments post automatically without review from our staff, but we reserve the right to delete material that is libelous, a personal attack, or spam. We request that commenters consistently use the same login name. Comments from the same user posted under multiple aliases may be deleted. Richmond Confidential assumes no liability for comments posted to the site and no endorsement is implied; commenters are solely responsible for their own content.
