Real-World Impacts

Legend
Real World Impact
Self reported impact on the communities the newsroom serves.

We measure our reporting influence in two ways: informing action, and informing debate. Our articles have been passed out at school board meetings and led to virtual school closings. Recently, our reporting on Spectrum not offering free internet to NYC customers who had an outstanding balance drew criticism from the mayor and led to a reversal of their policy.
