National news media has been faulted for oversimplifying, sensationalizing and emotionalizing human events and for focussing on dramatic crises ("if it bleeds it leads") rather than on more basic societal needs, trends and conditions. Similarly, controversy-oriented public affairs programming (e.g. crossfire) has been criticized for creating more heat than light and for feeding ever more political polarization in society.

The purpose of this website is to provide news about public affairs and public policy solutions to pressing social concerns. In the tradition of civic journalism, this nonpartisan site seeks to help improve the quality of people's lives by providing useful information and education that help may foster dialogue, policy innovation, and greater dispersion of compelling policy solutions to national and international problems.
