An Audit of Community News Outlets in the West

An Audit of News Ecosystems of the Intermountain West.

Mountain News Deserts- How do people living in small intermountain West communities get news?

Which sources do they trust and engage with? What issues do people care about? How does that stack up against the coverage provided by their local and regional media teams?


These questions are well studied in urban news markets, but not in places like rural Montana. Find the audit below.
