inewsource launched in 2009, amid a deep recession and a catastrophic downsizing of newspapers and network media in San Diego and across the country. Some of the greatest casualties of the disruption were investigative journalists, bulldogs in the industry whose passion was uncovering wrongs and wrongdoers in the name of the public good.
inewsource is a nonprofit, nonpartisan newsroom dedicated to improving lives in the San Diego region and beyond through impactful, data-based investigative and accountability journalism. Read more about our standards and policies.
Local news, especially investigative reporting, is essential to a functioning democracy. Our work brings to light inequity, injustice and government’s failure to protect the public. Our journalists help to prevent malfeasance and corruption.
We’re proud of the work we do and honored when it is recognized by our peers. Since we began publishing in 2009, inewsource has received multiple national and regional awards.
We value collaboration and partner with media outlets to maximize the reach of our journalism.
As a nonprofit, we rely on individual donors to support our journalism.
