Outlier sends high value information over text to Detroit news consumers to better meet their information needs.
A text exchange between a news consumer and Outlier can lead to a bigger story but meeting the info needs of our consumers is our first priority. In this instance the news consumer got the information they need and it led to a more stabilize housing situation.
When journalism is treated as a service the outcome is not always a story, but a simple exchange of information.
