Our readers, dissatisfied with the safe and sterile reporting found in most of the local media, look to our pages for honesty, attitude, truth and humor. We pride ourselves on hard-hitting, investigative news stories as well as cutting edge arts coverage. Recent cover stories have included: a portrait of a Southern Sudanese refugee who recently became a United States citizen, the story explored his struggle in deciding to denounce his homeland for a new life in a new country; an alternative perspective to teaching in the public schools, a local group convinced the school board that teaching the roots of Hip-hop culture was a way to connect
with children in urban elementary schools and launched a successful year long program throughout the Omaha Public School system; an historical profile of Vietnam nurses and their, until recently, unrecognized sacrifice; a piece exposing the probable permanent use of fossil fuels in stationary fuel cell technology and interviews with musician Perry Farrell and cartoonist Chris Ware.
In addition to feature stories, The Reader publishes an alternative health column; and a poetic and mysterious horoscope written by a local blues artist.
We also vigorously cover the local independent music scene that has made music one of Omaha's #1 exports.
