Good News For Independent Journalism

Spot.us has almost reached its goal for its first project, to fact-check political ads in San Francisco. David Cohn reports that the “SF Election Truthiness Campaign” is 80% funded!

They need to raise $500 in 10 days. Their goal is 20 additional pledges of $25; no one’s credit card will be charged unless the team meets the $2,500 target. Will you help, San Francisco resident or not?

Spot.us is a Knight-Funded project designed as a proof of concept for “community funded reporting.” Their initial focus is the Bay Area, but the concept is designed to be national.
