Have a data-driven story that doesn’t fit at your news outlet? The Thrust wants to help you publish it

A new website called The Thrust wants to help reporters publish interactive, data-driven stories they’re passionate about, but that may not fit at any existing news outlet. The Thrust is currently in beta and was created by Ken Schwencke, formerly of the Los Angeles Times, and The Guardian’s Troy Griggs. Griggs describes The Thrust’s mission as: “If a writer has this story, writes this story, and they pitch it to their place, and that place says no, they can find another home for a story that matters to them. What we do is provide that space for ourselves, and also see how useful that space might be to everyone in this field.”
