Support high-quality, free local news in the Coachella Valley
Vital news and information about our community needs to be available free for everyone. When it’s not, our democracy suffers. That’s why everything we report is free to read and not hidden behind a paywall. But while our content is free to read, it’s not free to produce. If you can, please consider helping us build this community asset by supporting our efforts.
A message from editor Mark Talkington
Across the country, local news outlets are closing in record numbers. In communities where they aren’t closing, including right here in the Coachella Valley, wealthy hedge funds are swooping into town to scoop up the scraps, close printing presses, and lay off employees. Their actions leave our communities — and our democracy — without a vital resource.
But there is a revolution happening. In cities across America, journalists are breaking free from the corporations and helping end their neighbors’ frustrations by creating independent newsrooms that are the exact opposite of “fake news.” By supporting CV Reporter, you are supporting an independent newsroom that serves our community well.
