Richmond Media
Free weekly newspaper that focuses on how local events affect real people.

Alternative Media
This site is an invaluable wealth of information.  They offer daily analysis of current events which put
the events into a larger historical context.  Excellently written and well researched articles from
a socialist perspective that give the reader much to think about.
 
AlterNet.org is a project of the Independent Media Institute, a nonprofit organization dedicated to
strengthening and supporting independent and alternative journalism.
Common Dreams is a national non-profit citizens' organization working to bring progressive Americans
together to promote progressive visions for America's future. Founded in 1997, they are committed to
being on the cutting-edge of using the internet as a political organizing tool and creating new models
for internet activism.
FAIR, the national media watch group, has been offering well-documented criticism of media bias
and censorship since 1986. We work to invigorate the First Amendment by advocating for greater
diversity in the press and by scrutinizing media practices that marginalize public interest, minority and
dissenting viewpoints. As an anti-censorship organization, we expose neglected news stories and
defend working journalists when they are muzzled. As a progressive group, FAIR believes that
structural reform is ultimately needed to break up the dominant media conglomerates, establish
independent public broadcasting and promote strong non-profit sources of information. 
 
The Independent Media Center is a network of collectively run media outlets for the creation of
radical, accurate, and passionate tellings of the truth. We work out of a love and inspiration for
people who continue to work for a better world, despite corporate media's distortions and unwill-
ingness to cover the efforts to free humanity.
In These Times is a national, biweekly magazine of news and opinion published in Chicago. For 25
years, In These Times has provided groundbreaking coverage of the labor movement, environment,
feminism, grassroots politics, minority communities and the media. In These Times features award-
winning investigative reporting about corporate malfeasance and government wrongdoing, insightful
analysis of national and international affairs, and sharp cultural criticism about events and ideas that
matter.
