About this Guide

This guide supports Ithaca College's Park Center for Independent Media, compares Independent Media to Main Stream Media, lists databases for alternative and diverse news sources, collates independent and diverse news sources, and collects sources of media criticism.

Park Center for Independent Media (PCIM) website:
The Park Center for Independent Media (PCIM), launched in 2008 and funded by a generous endowment from the Park Foundation, is a center for the study of media outlets that create and distribute content outside traditional corporate systems.

Special thanks to the most active activist I know, former Associate Director of PCIM Maura Stephens.  She is an indy media writer, expert & a great editor who contributed to this guide.  Here is her website: Maura Stephens.
