Washington, D.C. - 09/05/2006 - The Project for Excellence in Journalism today unveils a completely redesigned and reengineered website. PEJ’s new online home has the same address,, but gives users the power to find precisely what they want and then customize that data to learn more. New features include:

  • A powerful filter tool that allows users to select and compare virtually every piece of PEJ from the last 10 years. A mechanism to sort by media sector, industry trend or by topics in the news.  
  • A special chart-making function that lets users manipulate the data by creating their own charts or graphs.  
  • A centralized archive of all PEJ’s research studies, commentaries and background reports, including a searchable version of the annual State of the News Media study.  
  • New material every day including regular updates of key industry data.  
  • A soon-to-be-released media-tracking database.
Along with these additions, will still feature The Daily Briefing, PEJ’s daily on-line digest of media news, and links to journalism schools and websites.

“We think the new site will be more useful to anyone interested in the news media – journalists, students and citizens,” PEJ Director Tom Rosenstiel said. “The site is broader, deeper and easier to use than before and there are more improvements to come.”

Please visit the site when you get the opportunity. We also welcome suggestions, questions or critiques. Please send them along to Jessica Goldings, at or call 202.419.3650.
