What We Do
In some newsrooms it’s called “The Churn.” Other places refer to it as “feeding the beast.” But no matter what you call it, most daily newsrooms are slaves to the 24-hour news cycle. Quality of content often takes a backseat to quantity.
At PoliticalFiber.com, we’re bowing out of the race to break scandals and tweet .027 seconds faster than our competition. Our goal is to take a slow news approach to political coverage by providing thoughtful, in-depth analysis and reporting about the 2012 state and presidential elections.
On our site, you’ll find links to the day’s top stories as well as original content produced by our team of reporters, opinion writers and multimedia designers.
We look forward to working with you, dear reader, to build on this grand experiment and create a destination for state political coverage and a forum for informed conversation.
To provide University of Kansas students and other young Kansans with lively, high-quality reporting, analysis and conversation about the political issues that most affect them.
How We’re Funded
PoliticalFiber.com is funded by a Knight Foundation endowment to the William Allen White School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Kansas, and from generous people like you.
