About

FOR THE READERS 

A MINER DETAIL is a ferociously independent, nonpartisan, down-the-middle, good-ol’-fashioned Maryland daily news and politics website, dedicated to providing every reader a personal media experience – from breaking Maryland news – federal, state and local – to investigative journalism.

This news site features every imaginable topic from business, finance, government transparency, public policy, crime and corruption, transportation, partisan politics and even some classic muckraking (if warranted). 

NEWS IS ALL ABOUT THE DETAILS

Known to occasionally push the limits, challenging the status quo and upending machine politics, A Miner Detail began in April 2015, founded by Washington County native and self-described disruptor Ryan Miner.

Miner, who serves as the site’s editor in chief and senior reporter, is committed to aggressively uncovering Maryland news that often goes unreported. A Miner Detail features news from all pockets of Maryland – from Deep Creek Lake to Ocean City, from Solomons Island to Havre de Grace. A Miner Detail is everywhere, all over Maryland! 

From reporting news out of Annapolis to local municipalities, county government and political campaigns, A Miner Detail will go after the story, present the facts and let the readers decide.

A Miner Detail is happy to publish op-eds and commentary from Marylanders (and others) who wish to share their opinions and perspective on issues driving the day. One rule, however: Please root your opinion in facts. 

AGENDA AND PROMISE

A Miner Detail’s absolute promise to every reader is to provide raw, fearless, nonpartisan, BS-free, profoundly introspective reporting, and quality grade journalism, holding government entities accountable and keeping tabs on politicians who serve our respective communities. The only agenda is the facts.
