The Impact of Local Journalism

Local journalism reflects what the community cares about and helps connect neighbors with each other.

“In Victoria, open-records lawsuits filed by the Advocate were critical in exposing the illegal deal that landed former Congressman Blake Farenthold a $160,000 job as a lobbyist for the Calhoun Port Authority.”

“In Tyler, the city recently honored the Morning Telegraph for the integral role it played in helping residents survive the devastating winter storm that caused so much pain, damage and loss of life across our state. The city said our team “through courageous action, rose above the Winter Storm to care for our community.”

“In Longview, the News-Journal shined a light on the growing problem of abandoned buildings and the increasing issue of homelessness in that area. Shortly thereafter, investors bought some of those properties and have prepared it for redevelopment.”

“In Marshall, the News Messenger through words and pictures, told the tale of inhumane conditions and euthanized dogs at the Humane Society of Marion County – a story which, without our coverage, might never have come to light publicly.”

“In Carthage, the Panola Watchman was on the case of a longtime assistant district attorney accused of failing to properly investigate the criminal histories of witnesses, while telling court officials she had done so.

In Kilgore, the News Herald continues to cover a years-long lawsuit which could result in the local school district recovering nearly a quarter-million dollars lost in 2019 “as the result of a statewide lawsuit which drastically changed how heavy oilfield equipment is taxed in Texas.”
