Independent news on the horizon

Tired of infotainment? Angry at stenography journalism? Wondering where your democracy went?

Here's something to celebrate: Independent World News is building a news network free of
corporate or government sponsorship. It's the brainchild of Toronto filmmaker Paul Jay, who has put together a half-million in seed capital, an impressive advisory board, and a netroot-heavy fundraising plan for ITW's $25 million annual budget. They plan to start broadcasting in 2007.

This really is good news. Check out the website, watch the video if you have a high-speed connection, and consider making a small donation. As one visitor commented, "One day a formerly ignorant person will thank you for this."
