Is bad news giving you the blues? Us too, but you can't just tune out from all of this, it's all so important. The best you can hope for is intensive reporting from trusted and ethical sources, and that's KQED's line.
Start with a couple decades of articles, TV and radio broadcasts from the largest independent news organization in the San Francisco Bay Area. Fold in all the years of regional innovation, change and tumult. Now encapsulate it all in a singular, user-focused interactive platform that supports a wide array of formats, interests and subject matter.
You just might end up with Aleph's implementation of KQED.org; a ground-up rebuild of infrastructure, data sources and user experience in support of an innovative approach to digital publishing.
