The Online Media Guide is an ambitious project to document and present the media ecology of Washington State. Right now we have nearly 1,000 websites in our database, which is in constant development, so please check back often and send your suggestions to omg@wanewscouncil.org

Other ways to use the OMG

The Online Media Guide is also available as Firefox bookmarks, categorized by various tags that range in categories from scope of coverage, to funding, to partisanship.

We also have the database available as a spreadsheet which includes many email addresses and other information about the organizations listed. Right now we are offering the Google Maps as a free service, but are trying to cover the costs of this project by selling the spreadsheet and Firefox bookmarks. Please write to omg@wanewscouncil.org if you are interested in purchasing a copy
