The Online News Wire
Reporterist is a new website trying to reinvent the submission process for journalists. Here's their blog and here's an interview with the founders:
Our larger vision is that it's the next generation wire service, like an AP or a Reuters. The public wants high quality, relevant news. As the industry's cutting back, a lot of regions are under-covered. Most of the editors we spoke to say they're relying too much on AP or Reuters content. At Reporterist, they will be able to look at all these stories and sort them by region or topic. Our vision is to be a wire service for local, topical news.
