Maybe I’m just noticing it, but North Carolina seems to be enjoying a glint of media spotlight this week.
For starters, there’s an Al Jazeera America article about voting rights groups in the state shifting towards education campaigns (about voting rights). And the New York Times wrote about the Republican contenders who hope to knock Sen. Kay Hagan out of office, focusing on how the race “shows strains” within the GOP.
The Triad received a small slice of the limelight as well. The highly-respected Columbia Journalism Review wrote about the city of Winston-Salem’s loan to the Chronicle, heavily citing Camel City Dispatch‘s opposition and some of our editor Jordan Green’s reporting on the issue. (The article is called “Two local papers accepted money from City Hall in 2014: Is this a thing now?”)
They even gave a shout out to Triad City Beat.
