Arkansas News Service
A statewide non-profit news service for Arkansas. Based in Little Rock as a bureau of the Public News Service.
Public News Service’s Mission: The media's job is to interest the public in the public interest," said American educator John Dewey (1859-1952.) We take that challenge very seriously and believe the strength of a democracy depends on informed citizens making educated decisions. Our work is founded on a commitment to civic debate that includes the airing of the broadest range of perspectives. Our mission is to make it easier for news media under time and financial constraints to include voices and perspectives that articulate the importance of economic fairness, social and environmental justice and equal opportunity.
