About Ralph Nader Launching a Newspaper

From The Poynter Report:

In late January, Poynter published an article about how Ralph Nader, “the consumer advocate, former presidential candidate and scourge of corporate interests,” was launching a newspaper.

“At age 88,” it read, “Nader is still going strong and, beginning with his hometown in northwest Connecticut, he’s determined to do something about the ‘news desert’ crisis in local journalism.”

Nader put up $15,000 to fund the first print edition of The Winsted Citizen. The next edition … not so much.
