The New Mexico Independent

Launched in 2008, the New Mexico Independent covers public affairs in New Mexico. it is operated by the American Independent News Network, which “emphasizes the positive role of democratically elected government in securing the common good and social welfare.”¬†The network is funded by a variety of individuals and foundations, including the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Open Society¬†Foundations (Open Society Foundations is not currently funding the American Independent News Network). The New Mexico Independent claims to have generated 750 million impressions in TV, radio and newspapers.

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.
