The typical newspaper is a racket in which an overpaid publisher underpays a bunch of writers, graphic artists, and assorted other ne’er-do-wells to create a “product” designed to attract the eyeballs of an audience, which eyeballs the publisher then sells to advertisers.
The New Hampshire Gazette is a freelance insurgency in which a bunch of anarcho-syndicalists have taken over the means of production of an ancient national resource, and are using it to neutralize the effects of the dominant power structure’s most important tools of control, i.e., organs of corporate propaganda. As such, we’re not exactly natural allies of Exxon-Mobil, General Motors, or Proctor & Gamble.
There are, on the other hand, a whole slew of small businesses in our general vicinity which want to support our paper — despite being quite familiar with it. And we like having their ads in our paper. It means their owners are serious people who aren’t afraid to have their good names associated with ours. If anything could make us humble, that would be it.
