The Flatwater Free Press is Nebraska’s first statewide, nonprofit newsroom. We focus on two types of stories: investigations and feature stories that highlight the best of The Good Life. We believe that journalism is a public good; that sharing Nebraskan stories and keeping an eye on out institutions makes for a better, stronger state.
To that end, we send a Friday roundup of our work, as well as links to the best reporting about Nebraska, regardless of who did it. Often that means highlighting work from newsrooms across the state. Sometimes it means a Nebraska story from a national or regional newsroom. Always, it’s 100% free.
You can see an example here. Then sign up below to get a dose of the best of Nebraska news every week.
