Isthmus Partners With Other Local Media for Collaborative Reportingnew

Nearly two dozen media outlets in and around Madison, Wisc., are taking part in "Madison RX: Our Ailing Health Care System," the first series to come out of the new collaborative journalism project All Together Now, Bill Lueders reports. The project was launched as a way for local media to work together to tackle big issues. "We could achieve collectively more than any of our outlets could individually," Lueders writes. "And we could demonstrate our ability to advance a common purpose, with each outlet doing what it does best." The project, which got a shout-out in CJR earlier this year, "could serve as a model for journalists across the nation," Lueders reports. "As news staffs shrink, cooperation becomes imperative," he writes. "The Madison model is an ambitious attempt to make this work on a community-wide basis."
