Who wants to be a citizen journalist in CNY and contribute to a joint blog/website for progressive politics, culture, and news and events? Looking for writers, photographers, videographers to be part of a collective. Sorry no money for paying anyone for their work, not yet anyway, let’s see what we can do together? Lot’s of people think we have a media crisis in CNY – see the lack of coverage of the most recent General Election in Syracuse, particularly the mayoral race.

Ideas for campaigns, beats, and topics:

  • Common Council meetings, live-streaming, videotaping and reporting (RSS feed?)
  • Campaign against Anonymous Online commenting at news source websites.
  • Urban Jobs Task Force vs. COR
  • Your ideas.  What is not being covered and should be?  What is getting one-sided coverage by conservative media?

What can be contributed by others:

  • Reports from the field (from your actions on the streets)
  • Reports from your lobby visits (let’s hold them to what they said)


  • Weekly postings of new/original articles.
  • Diverse perspectives from numerous cultural, racial. economic backgrounds.
  • Collective ownership/management of Indy Media CNY.
  • Collective Twitter stream for dispersed real time reporting of events.
