From Marly Falcon, Knight Foundation contributing blogger:
When the'Fort Hood shootings were reported last week, The Texas Tribune stood back while other publications rushed to the scene. The'New York Times'explained that it wasn't that the incident lacked'interest to the journalists at the new web site.'It'just did not meet the criteria for the kind of news The Tribune wants to cover.
'The Texas Tribune concerns itself with issues on public policy and local state government.''It is a'non-profit, nonpartisan public media organization. Its mission is to'report on issues that other publications may not be concerning themselves with, such as education, immigration, health care, etc.
