Spot.us. Spot.Us is a nonprofit platform for “community powered reporting.”
Through Spot.Us the public can support journalists and newsrooms to do reporting on important and perhaps overlooked topics. Contributions are tax deductible and we partner with news organizations to distribute content under appropriate licenses. In November 2011 Spot.Us was acquired by American Public Media to help spur innovation in public media. The acquisition was initiated on the foundation of diligence and service that Spot.Us has provided to its community for the past three years and the compatibility of the Spot.Us platform with their groundbreaking project -- the Public Insight Network (PIN). The acquisition provides a new opportunity to expand the impact of public media journalism by making it more responsive and responsible to the public, while deploying new ways to support freelance reporters and the newsrooms that depend on them.
