The Dog has long advocated for and practiced community journalism and have often noted its difference from the mainstream media.
While we here at the House of News are a media outlet, delivering news and information on multiple platforms, we are committed to delivering local news that matters and impacts the Historic Northeast community.
For this, we have been the recipient of a number of awards from the Missouri Press Association for excellence in journalism.
Bunny the Newshound’s straight skinny column was recognized twice this year for outstanding opinion writing, scoring a first and second place award for weeklies with a circulation of 10,000 or better.
But enough about us, let’s talk about you, our readers and our community.
With a new year upon us, we’re going to mix things up a little in order to better reflect the views represented in our community.
That said, we’d like to invite our readers to sound off in this space on issues they think are important.
The Dog has long yielded this space to anyone with a diverging opinion.
The unwritten rule is that anyone who disagrees with the NewsDog goes to the front of the line in terms of opinion pieces.
This year, we want to take that to the next level.
During our interviews for the weekly Independence Avenue Community Improvement District advertising spread, one of the predominant reasons small business owners enjoy doing business here is the diversity of the community.
Ethnically, racially and socio-economically, the Historic Northeast community is one of the most diverse areas of Kansas City.
We are a rich tapestry of cultures all blended in the same community. It’s our diversity that gives us strength.
To that end, we’d like to capitalize on that diversity and offer this space to anyone with an engaged opinion on local news and events.
See something you don’t like? We want to hear about it. Something you like? We want that too.
Something that needs to be fixed or a city or government service or asset that works, we want to know about it through the written word.
It doesn’t have to be extremely well written; we can edit spelling, mechanics and grammar. Just offer a reasonably well thought out opinion on something that inspires you, throw down a few hundred words on it and we’ll take care of the rest.
Let your voice be heard here on the pages and electronic media platforms of the Northeast News!
