Charles Lewis, on inewsource:

Charles Lewis photo "We need investigative reporters, with their unusual, forensic approach to amassing and analyzing volumes of disparate information over days, weeks and even months; with their otherworldly patience, steadfast perseverance, and razor-sharp incisiveness.

"And we need editors and publishers to literally create the time and space for this crucial work, and the wisdom and judgment to effectively and responsibly shepherd these salient truths to the public."

—Charles Lewis, one of the "30 most notable investigative reporters in the U.S. since World War I," in a statement about inewsource.


Ken King

Ken King is a retired Chief Financial Officer who has served on several local non-profit boards.

"I choose to support inewsource because San Diego, as one of the largest cities in our nation, deserves more investigative news coverage than we receive. We have a few electronic papers, but not enough engage in strong investigative reporting. Unbiased news reporting is essential to inform voters, and informed voters are essential for good government.

"I’ve lived in San Diego for 35 years and watched the decline in reporting with dismay. We NEED inewsource to thrive. How many e-news organizations do we need? The more the better! But they need money to pay excellent reporters. That’s why I support inewsource and its mission."


"I support inewsource because of the great work of Karin Winner and Lorie Hearn. With the decline of newspaper and TV staffing for local coverage, inewsource plays a valuable role in critically examining the local landscape.

"The investigation of local issues and policies and behavior of key political and civic leaders is really important."

Jack McGrory, inewsource supporter
