This past June, CNN asked its readers to decide which five of twenty possible stories columnist John Sutter would cover in his Change the List Project. With 16,789 votes, first place went to “America’s widening rich-poor gap.”
Sutter says, “I love that each of these stories was chosen by you. I see that as a mandate of sorts. When journalists pitch big projects they sometimes wonder, ‘Is this really the best use of my time?’ I don’t have those doubts with Change the List. I know I’m working on your behalf — on the topics you’ve deemed most important.” Those of us at Seven Stories are encouraged that the public is so interested in income inequality; we think it’s pretty important too.
As Sutter begins researching his series, he’s asking the public again for help. This time, he wants help compiling a list of approximately 100 “must reads” on the subject of income inequality.
