Making access to good journalism harder for the increasing ranks of the poor seems counterproductive to why we care about good journalism in the first place. Also it pushes people towards aggregation sites and tools we might not like or see as much money from.

I feel like Trader Joe’s is just trolling sworn candy corn enemies @BrianManzullo and @Cande313 at this point
My horoscope: “Today is not a good day to try to express your individual genius”🙄
I would recommend becoming a freelance writer if you enjoy doing work and getting paid for it 12 years later

...mind you, this bike and pedestrian area in Union Square was a two way street like 3-4 years ago. Detroit, you can't compete with big cities for additional residents and improved quality of life if you're resistant to big change

one of the most crucial questions you can ask yourself is, "is this my job?" and girls, let me tell you, it's usually not.

In 2004 MDOT proposed a plan to update I-94 that blazed a wider path through Detroit, eliminating bridges and buildings. 15 years later their new proposal looks much better & is friendlier to cyclists & pedestrians. There's even provisions for transit. detroitgreenways.org/newly-proposed…

What happens to democracy when independent journalism disappears? So thankful to @gmfus for helping me tell this story. gmfus.org/blog/2019/09/2… #gmfmmf
How do you measure the impact of investigative journalism? 6,500 patients are having their medical debt erased thanks to this nonprofit newsroom. Think about that, think about what your donations can make possible. twitter.com/wendi_c_thomas…

Two minor “facts” to remember when you are reading this “opinion”: 1) Transit ridership in metro Detroit increased in 2018, contrary to the statement in the opinion. It also grew in Ann Arbor. 2) Uber lost $5.5 Billion in the second quarter of 2019. That is Billion with a B. twitter.com/ChadLivengood/…

Ochre Bakery in Detroit named one of the best new restaurants in America. Started by my favorite coffee shop in Corktown, @AstroCoffee. Better yet, I found out by reading @Ash_Detroit’s @Detour_Detroit! twitter.com/bonappetit/sta…

You can never fully realize how bad your transit system is until you have to rely on it for errands & appointments. To go four miles from my house to a midday appointment & get there on time: Walk: 70 minutes Bike: 25 minutes Bus: (walk 1 mile to bus stop) 40 minutes

@Ash_Detroit PREACH. I've been feeling my privilege a lot lately, in that I get health care from my spouse and was in a solid financial place before taking the leap. How many others have ideas but can't make it work? The future of news needs diversity in socioeconomic background.

@Ash_Detroit I know we're not text on a page (which is a strike against us for most folks), but it's a big part of why we don't even bother applying. It won't get the job done. We found it more productive to pick up the phone and just go get business.

It’s been cool to see more grants targeted at #localnews sites experimenting with revenue + membership ideas. Just wish funders realized it would be far more helpful to fund 12mo stipends so founders could focus full-time on their ideas and pay rent or have health insurance
Attention Detroit residents, downtown employees, @waynestate students & @MidtownDetroit Midtown employees, the new restaurant, Magnet, opens this Friday & you can get there by DDOT buses #3 & #8. There's not much parking nearby so ride transit! wxyz.com/news/region/de…

As someone who has watched Ratatouille a lot lately, I wonder why Disney+ doesn’t have a show where Remy teaches kids the joy of cooking?

I always wish we had more words than “gentrification.” A few readers have pointed out that tons of residents aren’t exactly being gentrified in Eastern Market. So what’s the word for the process when the character of a neighborhood is replaced by luxury condos? twitter.com/Detour_Detroit…
This is really important. This story literally tells readers to stop wasting their money and buy life insurance, based on a survey run by the life insurance company who advertised in the story. That’s #sponcon and @USATODAY shouldn’t be sharing it as news. twitter.com/wendi_c_thomas…
Investigating properties sold from a tax auction is a monumental task. @Detour_Detroit & @media_outlier enlisted the help of citizen journalists in a workshop to vet dozens of buyers. Here's how they did it @KABBEYL @Ash_Detroit @ShorensteinCtr buff.ly/2ViH98c

6/6: We could go on (bit.ly/2ZnMOcn) and on (bit.ly/2ItvdKK) but instead, we just want to say thank you. Truly local journalism doesn't happen without an incredible community of readers. <3 @Ash_Detroit & @KABBEYL

I had a fantastic few days hosting #GMFMMF fellows from the US. They were a curious and engaging group who were keen to learn about #sheffield. Such a fab bunch. Sad to see them go but thankful they enjoyed it and talked about visiting again! @gmfus

PSA: While there are stories about how local news orgs are dying please keep in mind the ethnic media that has been serving the long deserted communities many of these local news orgs have ignored. They have been living in news deserts for decades and decades, but still survive.
