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.
