In San Francisco in 1970, a China scholar and a group of freelance journalists founded the Pacific News Service to challenge the official U.S. narrative about the Vietnam War. The news service later launched New America Media, a collaboration of ethnic news organizations, and many other journalism projects. Pacific News Service and New America Media are closing this week. Executive Director Sandy Close joins Forum to discuss nearly half a century of ambitious journalism, and the changing media landscape.
