Across The Culture believes its greatest role is to make better sense of existing information instead of running the hot take race. ATC-MSP believes its role locally is to help readers question, change, and/or preserve important aspects of Twin Cities culture.

ATC-MSP will publish original investigations, but emphasis will be placed on clarifying our shared view of Twin Cities culture rather than having the latest scoop.

No information source can cover everything. As soon as topics and stories are chosen, many others are left out. As soon as an angle is taken, many others remain unexplored. There is no truly unbiased source of information. That being said, ATC-MSP’s process to capture the reality of Twin Cities culture before opining on it is thorough, accurate, and impartial.

How do we get our facts straight before editorializing?
