NowPublic: How We Can Pay The Bills.
By: The Rev.
Citizen Journalism was the main goal for Now Public when it first formed....And now the co-founders have reneged by selling it off to Big Media... I find this appalling and illegal... I ask you to support an NP Writers Union...by simply joining us... to stop them from destroying what we have been very successful in accomplishing.
It takes management to do their job. First to campaign for advertisers then to create the real money investment plan, by setting up buying citizen journalism private stock... This will not be done through the Stock Market.... Stock money will be held in Trust in an online… Now public sort of tracking banking system.....where money and joining members show full transparency.
Each day we will see who buys Stock…and those numbers add up to NP value and worth....The idea is to get enough buyers so to pay for on air services.... It is hoped the people who provide the on air services will also buy stock....to realize a stable growing citizen journalism site...
Since it is not posted in Wall Street, we will not fear that it can be taken over or lose our money invested. Other good things can be achieved also buy setting up other phases for NP…such as book publishing and online book reading.
I would also apply for Public Government Grants....because this provides a service for everyone.
