But Haecker says the independently-owned Nugget is “a reporter’s dream,” because of its nature as a community paper. “You are embedded in the community, you live in the community, and you report on the important things that affect the community,” Haecker said. So we’re not having to obey any corporation rules that sometimes skew reality.” Haecker says she sees herself as a “caretaker” of the paper during what she calls a “significant time” for the Arctic. “It’s in the spotlight because of climate change,” Haecker said. “So we are right here at ground zero for reporting on Arctic issues. We are here. And we report from right here.” According to Haecker, that reporting will mostly stay the same under the new ownership.
