The Spotlight Project

Shining light:

What is The Spotlight Project?: [T]he traditional news media consistently favors Republican and establishment causes.... One has to look no farther than comparing how the press treated the Clinton Whitewater deal versus numerous Bush scandals....

In contrast, the progressive blogging community is very effective at fact checking, in depth analysis, developing stories that the traditional news ignores and identifying the press's regurgitation of Republican talking points.

The Spotlight Project works by enabling the progressive blogging community to more efficiently communicate with the traditional news media, their advertisers, and politicians. The hope is that with enough voices we can reinvigorate the fourth estate.
