In addition to a host of non-profit news outlets, a crop of commercial outlets have risen up in recent years into the news space. Like the non-profit sites in this study, these commercial outlets are young, online-only, and publish a steady stream of news reports about state or national affairs. This group of sites–though unaffiliated–can be explored in this interactive tool as a point of comparison to the nonprofit sites in the study.

Commercial sites studied include:

Alaska Dispatch
CT News Junkie
New Jersey Newsroom
New West
Progress Illinois
Sunshine State News
The Daily Caller
