Village Media in a Global Village ?

A small company called Village Media seems to be making a go of local online news... and is making it profitable.  We always suspected that the fringe wouldn't consume the web, didn't we ?  

 

It's important to note that at its advent, the western press was more partisan but eventually learned that it could have a wider market by being objective. We just need to rediscover this aspect of our media diet,  and perhaps in ourselves also, to move past this era of fake news and unprincipled partisanship.

 

Or am I wearing Rose Coloured media glasses ?
