Norberto Santana, the publisher of Voice of OC, was a dynamic and inspiring speaker. He talked about the nonprofit model for journalism and the critical importance of investigative reporting at the local level. Norberto explained how corporations have been buying up newspapers around the country for years. As a result, the mission of most papers and other media outlets has become to focus on entertainment in order to sell products. By contrast, the nonprofit model of Voice of OC and ProPublica has a mission to inform and engage with community about the choices facing public officials. The daily goal of Voice of OC is to inform the public and help connect the dots between local, state and federal issues, and to show the connection between campaign contributions and public officials and their policies.
