What Is the Mission of The Fine Print?
The Fine Print is an alternative, bimonthly publication based in Gainesville, FL. Our mission is to serve the Gainesville community by providing an independent outlet for political, social and arts coverage through original, local and in-depth reporting.
We’re not affiliated with any university, nor do we make any money. We do what we do because we care and we love it. Unlike The Gainesville Sun, which does a great job providing day-to-day local news, our purpose is advocacy journalism.
What Is Advocacy Journalism?
Advocacy Journalism intentionally and transparently assumes a non-objective viewpoint to achieve a social, political or environmental purpose. It is different than media bias because it doesn’t claim to be objective or neutral, and it’s not the same as propaganda because the reporting is intended to be factual and informative.
