Stockton, Calif., may represent the future of American news.

The city’s longtime newspaper, The Record, has lost reporters, subscribers and, therefore, power. Meanwhile a non-traditional news source, a controversial online outlet called 209 Times, has quickly become one of the most popular sources of news in town. It proudly doesn’t follow most journalistic norms and brags about tanking the previous mayor’s campaign. Critics say the 209 Times is filling Stockton with misinformation.

Yowei Shaw, host of NPR’s Invisibilia, investigates.
