    ePluribus Media was so effective. It couldn't fulfill the promise of its potential due to some behind-the-scenes stuff, but if the proper infrastructure had been in place it would still be around.

    I think boatsie, here, has tried to organize some elements like what you've suggested. It's one of those things that coulda, shoulda been fostered which (IMO) could leverage the power and reach of the community here to the communities at large and help make a very important leap WRT news, information, reporting and vetting.

    Perhaps it can still happen.

    ...good luck with the flooding. Hope you and yours are managing ok.

      Now I know at times a great diary will get promoted to the front page. But doesn't seem to happen as often as I think it should.

      Why not have a fund here and an editor, their only goal is to get a Kossack to go out and report on this or that topic. The editor could help them with the story, edit it, guide them. Make sure everything is accurate.

      The fund would be to compensate the person for their efforts.

      If we had something like this, the first story I'd pitch is the Keystone pipeline.

      Keystone-pipeline-route

      I don't live that far from Woodriver IL, where in fact the pipeline is already built. I bet if I started to make some phone calls and take some pictures, well we'd maybe find out some interesting things.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
