About

The Blue Alaskan Blog (TBA), was known for its hard-hitting and aggressive investigative reporting, shed light on the dark side of Anchorage politics, brought about reform, helped push progressive candidates across the finish line, and kept bad actors out of local government.

Several stories published in The Blue Alaskan led to the blog being cited and its stories further reported on or republished by news and media outlets such as the Washington Post, Alaska Public Media, Alaska Democrats, Book Riot, Business Insider, The Library Journal, The Friendly Atheist, LGBTQ Nation, Los Angeles Blade, The Midnight Sun Blog, Anchorage Press and the Anchorage Daily News.

The blog retired in April 2022 when its author, Matthew Beck, became the Communications Director for the Alaska Democratic Party.
