Way to go Jimmy! You will now Jimmy Wales a founder of Wikipedia, that GREAT crowd sourcing information repository in the sky.
It is unclear when WikiTribune will actually launch. More than 10,000 subscribers agreed, in advance, to pay a monthly fee for this quality news. You can still join up at www.WikiTribune.com and encourage the effort.
It seems that using crowds, we can attack bogus news and untruths! Jimmy thinks so, and a lot of other people do too.
The news is broken in soooo many ways, and the WikiTRIBUNE approach may be the single best way to fix the news. Or at least partially fix it.
Fact-based journalism with a Wikipedia twist, the site that brings you the world's largest 'pedia.
Or we can continue to perpetuate the junk news, fake news, and big-advertiser skewed news.
It is a free subscription, actually, but if you pay a little for the monthly subscription, it will be a sustainable source of real, and unbiased news.
And, you too, can become an author. And you too can become an editor.
I assume this will work much like the articles in Wikipedia that have tighter controls. Where bias is noted and flagged, and comments that are unsupported have prominent warnings like.
Paid advertising. Full disclosure as to ownership conflicts, appears related to adds and articles.
