Local Motion: Local Reporting in the Public Interest

Aug 25, 2020

Passionate hyper-local reporting in the public interest can come at a cost.  For Erin McIntyre, co-publisher of The Ouray County Plaindealer, critical reporting on defiance of county health measures during the pandemic led to retaliation from a local business. On this week's program we also speak to Thomas Wills, editor and publisher of The North Fork Merchant Herald, about his three decades of engagement in the community and his perspective on Delta County politics.
