With profit and not truth as the driving force behind the delivery of news, billionaire media owners are looking to give more for less. Across the nation newspapers have folded. Newspaper reporters have been laid-off. Content companies like one formerly called “Journatic” cut deals with publishers like the Chicago Sun-Times to deliver news about local communities in the USA that was written by writers in India and the Philippines using fake names for $6 and $12 a story. Over 350 of these fake-bylined “local” foreign-written stories were published in the Chicago newspaper.
African American and Hispanic newspapers and magazines like Ebony and Jet have lost relevance and interest to the core communities they once served. Radio stations that once all carried local news are owned by broadcast conglomerates that haven’t invested a dime in empowering local minds.
Today publishers are seeking ways to deliver news through “artificial intelligence” instead of real human, truth-digging reporters.
Donate to help EJBNEWS.com deliver more and daily reporting from real writers digging for facts that expose and share “truth” citizens of the USA can use for empowerment.
This is a donation. The donations are non-refundable. EJBJNEWS.com is not a 501(c)(3) non-profit so donations are not tax deductible.
All donations are allocated entirely to operating expenses that grow the website and support legal fees to pursue our truth-telling mission. Corrupt government officials don’t give up public records easily even in states with liberal open records laws. When they resist EJBNEWS.com will fight.
Thank you for your support.
