The Revolution Must Be Digitized

The Local is under assault, folks, and we need your help to save it. With news staffs being cut nationwide, with corruption on the rise, the need for investigative reporting is paramount. As the Inquirer continues to be pared down, it will be up to weekly newspapers and blogs to show us what Philadelphia has become and what it should be. It seems that the ownership of the Local is trying to purge the current staff and bring in a more deferential crew. We will need a groundswell of support this year to get more friends of the paper on the CHCA board. You must take the power back from those who abuse it. Not just for the survival of the paper but for the good of the community. Let this blog be your place to organize.

The revolution must be digitized.
