the Idaho report.
The Idaho Report is a new type of news outlet. We are a news agency incorporated in the State of Idaho. The Idaho Report was founded out of frustration at the lack of investigative journalism in the Inland Northwest.
Our mission is simple; select a topic, do the research, publish the truth.
Our format is also simple. A one-line TL;DR (too long, didn’t read), a one-paragraph summary, and the full story, including documentation to back up our claims and instructions on how you can obtain your own copies.
Unlike other news outlets, our articles contain just facts and statements. If we offer an opinion, it is clearly labeled “opinion” and highlighted.
