MinnPost fares well in Pew study of nonprofit digital news sites

There’s a study out today of 46 new national and state-level nonprofit news enterprises, conducted by the Pew Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. It found that about half of them had a distinctly ideological slant, and that as a group they did a mediocre job of being transparent about their funding sources and mission.

MinnPost, however, scored high on both ideological balance and transparency, as well as on a third category, productivity – which basically means volume of original content produced.

Rick Edmonds of the Poynter Institute wrote an article providing a good summary and analysis of the report.  

You can also check out the study itself, which includes numerous charts comparing MinnPost with the other sites on each measure.
