I think that NFU should be regarded as the model for a bigger operation— a kind of online newspaper, working 24/7 to provide some truth about what’s going on: a site that, on the one hand, would aggregate what’s out there, somewhat like the Drudge Report (but with no one like Matt Drudge involved), but at the same time have the resources to hire investigative journalists to do the crucial work that “our free press” has stopped doing.
And as we’re entering a new age of samizdat, I think we also should be ready for the Big Blackout, when they hit the kill switch, because things will have been getting out of hand; so we should also think about a weekend paper paper that would be distributed to churches, synagogues and mosques, and wherever else folks congregate.
Let me add that this new site/publication should have a sense of humor, and look great, too—like Ramparts (which should somehow be republished); and we’d have reviewers covering books, movies, music, and so on. (Needless to say, it would not be “woke” at all: on the contrary.)
Anyone who’s interested in mounting such an effort, and/or who knows any angels who might want to make it happen—it will be very expensive— should feel free to let me know.

Gosh where do I send my CV? I know some investors here in San Diego…people friendly to 9/11Truth, etc.
I would gladly work for such a newspaper too. I was a reporter at The Star Ledger. After that, I worked on attempting to overturn Citizens United for a few years and for a brief while tried to organize an upstate group focused on reopening the 9/11 investigation. Thanks for your work. I look forward to NFU in my inbox. It is a bright spot in my day.
