Pew studies state news sites (like our New Mexico Watchdog)

The Pew Foundation, a generally elite, left-of-center foundation, recently analyzed the national network of Watchdog sites like our own New Mexico Watchdog. And, while they predictably found that the sites “leaned conservative,” I’m proud to say that our own Watchdog site was “at the lower end of the ideology scale.” That’s pretty good, especially considering that up until this year, New Mexico’s political structure was almost totally controlled by Democrats.

So, while the only axes our reporters have to grind are in defense of taxpayers and honesty in government, we are pleased by Pew’s findings. Jason Stverak of the Franklin Center which coordinates and assists with the national network of Watchdog sites has his own take here.
