DescriptionThe Locust Fork News-Journal like many websites is wholly devoted to the quirks whims emotions and talents of its founder—in this case a former newspaper reporter and self-proclaimed champion of the “independent watchdog Web press” named Glynn Wilson. Unlike most sites (including many owned by the “corporate media” Wilson rails against) the News-Journal is stable and profitable—a testament to what can happen when a dedicated reporter takes on issues that are meaningful to him and is savvy enough to build a platform and audience to support his efforts.
