You know plenty of manufacturing jobs have gone overseas for decades, and data processing and customer service jobs have followed in recent years -- but local news stories? Hard to believe, but it's true: dozens of Tribune Company newspapers use Journatic, which uses Philippine workers to write "local news stories" for 35 to 40 cents per story, in place of, oh, I don't know, their own journalists who actually live and work in the local communities the papers serve. And, as you might expect, the "local news stories" are only local in that they're generally local press releases re-written slightly -- because what journalism's really missing is more press releases disguised as news stories! So Free Press helps you tell Tribune Company chair Sam Zell to stop with the fake "local" news stories already. Sam Zell, who's made a gazillion dollars cutting journalists from his papers, very likely doesn't care what you think -- unless it costs him money, as all the bad PR he's about to get will do very shortly.
Meanwhile, CREDO helps you tell Alabama Public Television not to give David Barton free airtime. Who's David Barton? A man Glenn Beck describes as "a Library of Congress in shoes," Mr. Barton has spent the last quarter-century-plus doing "research" "proving" that the Founders wanted America to be an exclusively Christian nation, which you might not expect from men for whom religious intolerance was still a raw memory. Mr. Barton continues to shlep "unconfirmed quotations" from the Founders he claims are "consistent" with their values even if he can't actually prove the Founders actually said them, plus he sees a centuries-old war with Islam where none exists and prefers not to talk about all that slavery and Jim Crow that happened in the South. In other words, he's a bad historian, someone who coddles weaklings who lash out at anyone who reminds them they're just as capable of evil as anyone else, and bad historians don't need to be taking public money. He can keep taking Glenn Beck's money if he wants.
