Sierracountyprospect.org has applied for Digital News Media membership in CNPA.
Liz Fisher is publisher of the Downieville-based site, which calls itself “Source of all things Sierra County” and says, “This newspaper tells the truth as clearly as we see it.” It was founded in 2012.
Until confirmation by the CNPA Board of Directors on Feb. 4, Sierra County Prospect is a provisional member of CNPA and is eligible for all the benefits of a Digital News Media member.
CNPA defines “Digital News Media” as an organization that posts news and information of a local character, using digital media that may include the internet, websites, mobile and tablet technology. Online publications can be paid or free news websites or electronic news publications with at least 50 percent local news content, rather than aggregated, copied or reprinted from other sources, with a substantial portion produced by local staff in California.
