What is Alt-PressWatch?

Alt-PressWatch showcases unique, independent voices from many respected and cited grassroots newspapers, magazines, and journals. The database features around a million articles from over 270 publications, offering a wide range of unfettered, critical coverage of the news. Providing an alternative to corporate controlled media, the Alt-PressWatch database presents big stories from small sources.

Alt-Press Watch gives readers and researchers access to many distinctive, thought-provoking titles. Alternative news weeklies like Eugene Weekly, Missoula Independent, and The Village Voice offer different perspectives on US government, policy, and culture; report on local, national, and international issues; and cover hot-button topics like hunger, abuse, the environment, religion, and pop culture. Magazines and journals of the independent press like City Limits, Dissent, Against the Current, and Ability Magazine provide in-depth coverage of a broad range of critical issues confronting contemporary society, including ecology and the environment, labor, public policy, and more. The Alt-Press Watch database includes these titles and many others, providing an unmatched, multi-disciplinary resource for researchers seeking an alternative to mainstream media perspectives.
