About MediaFile

MediaFile publishes news about the news: We’re a digital outlet exploring Washington-based reporting up close, and tracking the industry as a whole. MediaFile is an editorially and financially-independent project created by students at The George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs (SMPA).

We seek to enrich discourse about news coverage, industry trends, and media ethics. MediaFile covers all media, but we place particular emphasis on Washington-based news publications, Washington bureaus, and the political coverage that defines the District.

Our output is objective journalism, supplemented by subjective opinions, editorials, critiques, columns, and op-eds. MediaFile’s stories are written, edited, and curated by college students across the country.
