Public Press on ‘Dan Rather Reports’

In early April, the San Francisco Public Press was featured on “Dan Rather Reports” in a segment titled “Taxing News.” The segment focused on the Public Press and other nonprofit journalism startups’ struggle to gain nonprofit status from the IRS. Though the Public Press currently accepts tax-deductible donations through the San Francisco-based Independent Arts & Mediaindependent 501(c)3 status from the IRS would pave the way for additional funding. 

Though the full episode, “The Queen of Green” is available for download in iTunes for $1.99 or by subscription on Xfinity by Comcast, a three-minute excerpt can be viewed here and on the San Francisco Public Press’ YouTube channel.
