metric media newspapers

While Montana’s media landscape has for years included left- and right-leaning political blogs authored by resident partisans, Big Sky Times and eight other Montana-focused sites affiliated with Metric Media represent a new trend: digital news outlets that present themselves as community news sites even though they operate without a local editorial staff and appear to promote a political agenda.
Matt Gibson, director of the Montana Newspaper Association, said the state’s newspapers can compete with efforts like the Metric network by focusing on building their local relationships, and reminding their readers how newspapers can bring people together.
