The Media

Quality Reporting

The Missoula Independent has a brief about Kaci Clipe, the parody artist who came up with the rather lame mockery of the Big Sky Democrats page.  You might remember there was some controversy about the site related to the identity of the author and the bias displayed by the media in the story.

I remember thinking to myself “Surely, the Tribune checked the domain registration and contacted that person.” Surely they aren’t running a story speculating about the owner of the web page without contacting the listed owner of the domain.”  After all, it took me 14 seconds to find the identity of the site’s owner, surely a daily newspaper can do it.

Guess not.

If you appreciate an independent voice holding Montana politicians accountable and informing voters, and you can throw a few dollars a month our way, we would certainly appreciate it.
