What is Public Insight Journalism?

At the Center for Sustainable Journalism we pursue stories by finding the people who know.

We’re looking for people from all walks of life in Georgia. We’re offering a relationship. You sign up and we ask for some information about you. About once a month, we email you a fresh set of questions related to our news priorities. You contact the journalist in charge of the Network whenever you want to share more information. You find out when we’re working on something that could involve you.

The Center for Sustainable Journalism uses sources in the Public Insight Network to:

  • Discover news stories that have not been reported.
  • Find fresh insights and perspectives for news stories.
  • Find people who can help tell the stories we are following.

Our current journalism projects include:

The Public Insight Network is a private database that we use to inform our reporting. Here’s how:

Information you provide in a Web form or email is not published and does not leave the newsroom and will not be published without your permission.

Your information is read by Editorial Director Ellen Miller and a reporter. They prepare the files, contact the sources from the database who are involved and transfer the appropriate information.
Source information used by our news team is not in the public realm unless you agree. A reporter and editor will decide whether to contact you, and they walk you through the process as they would for any other news source.

We never use your information for anything other than journalism. We never use your information for marketing or fundraising.
