Is There a Transpartisan Media Crisis in California?


We all know that investigative political journalism in this country has been weakened by the steady financial decline of our country's news outlets. National stories still receive headlines, but what does this mean for balanced examination of our state and local level governments?

In an open letter to Californians published on, CALmatters (a public interest journalism venture committed to explaining how California’s state Capitol works and why it matters) explores the struggles of California media and the impact those struggles have on statewide political coverage.

The Transpartisan Review also has a presence on and, if you are a Medium reader, we invite you to subscribe to our publication there to receive notifications about our Transpartisan Notes.
