MediaMouse.org was a leftist blog and news website that was active for almost ten years in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our main focus was on covering under-reported news and bringing that to a larger audience. Over the years, we did that in a number of different ways including running one of the first blogs in Grand Rapids, organizing protests (in the early years), documentary screenings, and other events.
When we ceased publishing in 2009, our mission statement was:
Mediamouse.org is a left and progressive group blog providing independent news, media, analysis, book reviews, and commentary covering Grand Rapids, Michigan and beyond. We aim to inspire grassroots activism to transform our community, our lives, and our world.

We will continue to aggregate headlines on this site from sources that we like, so feel free to check the homepage regularly. There is still every bit as much wrong with the world–if not more–than when we started, so we aren’t giving up–just finding new ways to continue the struggle.
