The source's audience must also be considered. Evidence of significant coverage by international or national, or at least [[Newspaper#Local or regional|regional]], media is a strong indication of notability. On the other hand, attention <em>solely</em> from local media, or media of limited interest and circulation, is not an indication of notability; at least <em>one</em> regional, statewide, provincial, national, or international source is necessary.
It is possible that an organization that is not itself generally [[WP:NOTE|notable]] will have a number of significant sources discussing its (alleged) illegal conduct. Sources that primarily discuss purely such conduct shall not be used to establish an organization's notability per this guideline. However, the organization may still be notable, in whole or in part due to such sources, under different guidelines, e.g., [[WP:CRIME]].
