There is a need for a netizens news in the US that will make it possible to broaden the spectrum of news that is available and that will welcome diverse viewpoints and the interaction and discussion among these viewpoints. There are examples of such news organizations in other countries, like OhmyNews in South Korea and Telepolis in Germany. These online news media make it possible for those with a broad range of views to discuss their differences and to contribute articles about the news and their views on a broad spectrum of issues. In the U.S. there is a commercial news media that limits what is allowed to be published in the print media. Online there is a broader spread of views, but in general, many of the alternative news media only accept articles from a relatively small strata of people. Also there is not any broadranging discussion on any of the alternative publication web sites that are widely known. An online press which could focus a broad ranging public debate on issues that are critical to the plight of the common people, a press which would broaden the spectrum of views and debate, is sorely needed. To this end we are beginning the web site, and we hope this can be combined with a Usenet newsgroup or mailing list for discussion.
