The Washington Independent

After posting about gathering news the non-profit way, I stumbled across an interview with Allison Silver, editor of the Washington Independent--the newest of the non-profit start ups--on the Online Journalism Review.

It launched on Jan. 28 under its parent site, Center for Independent Media, and combines news coverage, blogging and commentary. With a strong focus on politics (given the current election), Silver said readers can expect to see a wide array of coverage on the economy, finance, national security and the environment.

She also noted "part of all informed discussion about the future of journalism involves the non-profit model."

It's continuing support for the push on non-profit journalism.
