American Independent News Network
The American Independent News Network, formerly known as the Center for Independent Media, was founded in 2006. The reporting of its nine state-based outlets “emphasizes the positive role of democratically elected government in securing the common good and social welfare, and the continuing benefits of our founding culture of egalitarian government by the people, for the people.” Two of its nine outlets ceased publication in 2010.
After this analysis was conducted, AINN changed how it organizes web content to better reflect the journalistic nature of stories that were published in its blog sections and thus not counted by PEJ. It has discontinued its blogs, and all of its content is now published in the main news channel.
