About Portland News Review

Welcome to Portland News Review.

Portland News Review is inspired by Columbia Journalism Review, American Journalism Review (now defunct), The Poynter Institute, On the Media and similar media watchdogs and friends of the press. We join these organizations as they not only work to hold the news media to account for their errors and shortcomings, but give accolades where due and stand by their side in the defense of journalism against the relentless attacks, both subtle and overt, of those who seek to stifle rigorous, ethical journalism and a free press.
