StatePoint Media is a first-of-its-kind media company, providing free state and
national editorial content to newspapers, magazines and websites. Our editorial
products focus on providing top quality service journalism — feature stories
that offer tangible information your readers can turn into action. StatePoint Media
stories are sourced from highly credible experts at leading non-profit organizations,
professional trade associations, government agencies and corporate community affairs
Our editorial team is composed of award-winning journalists whose work has been
published in such industry leading media outlets as The New York Times, The Los Angeles
Times, ESPN, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, The Boston Globe, Cleveland
Plain Dealer, Woman's World, TV Guide, Saveur, Food Arts, New York Post,
Tribune News Service and many others.
StatePoint Media will save you time and money during your busy production cycle.
Rather than pay other editorial services and writers when you're in need of content,
you can use any of our stories or games free-of-charge. And our unmatched
assortment of high quality content — from feature stories and special supplements
to abbreviated Short Takes and puzzle games — can be downloaded in a matter
of seconds for immediate insertion in your print or online publication. Furthermore,
our strict editorial policy delivers stories that provide your readers with tangible
information they can turn into action — StatePoint Media offers "news readers
can use," not "fluff" pieces.
All of our content is downloadable from our password-protected, press-only website
(www.statepoint.net). Additionally, websites can sign up for automated content
feeds. The StatePoint Media website is password-protected to ensure its use only by
media outlets. A one-time registration is required, however, we assure you that
the limited amount of personal information we gather is kept confidential and not
shared with any third parties.
After you have logged onto the service, individual stories and puzzles can be previewed
prior to actual download. Stories are downloaded to your computer as text files,
making it easy to copy and paste their content into QuarkXPress, PageMaker or any
other newspaper production software. Accompanying artwork is available in TIFF format.
You can choose to download a story’s text or artwork separately or together in the
form of a "Zipped" file. Finally, you can choose to save files onto your computer
or open them directly without saving them to your computer.
The limited amount of personal information you provide to us at registration (e.g.
newspaper name, contact name, title, email, phone) is kept completely confidential.
StatePoint Media, Inc. is committed to maintaining the privacy of personal information
that you provide to us when using this website and requires registration to insure
