MediaShift . Laid-Off Arizona Journalists Start Online-Only Publications | PBS:
"Why It's Innovative
These five journalists decided to keep doing their jobs even after being laid off.
Rather than turning to other newspapers, they began planning their online news sites when layoffs were announced in October. Both sites launched right after the layoffs were completed in early January.
At a time when newspapers are in trouble and the website is still, at many news organizations, an afterthought, these reporters took the brave new step and struck out online only -- on their own. If they succeed, they could be examples for scores of other journalists who have been laid off recently."

Now this is cool. I hope they do a better job than the lame ol' publication they worked at before. You know... actually report instead of proselytize... it would be a welcome change. I hope they give it a shot.
