A letter from The American Independent editor to TWI readers
If you are a dedicated reader of The Washington Independent, you are likely aware that three weeks ago financial constraints led to the loss of its talented staff. We here at the American Independent News Network understand that The Washington Independent of old is near impossible to emulate. Yet we also understand the need for comprehensive news coverage, especially of our elected leaders, throughout the country. Realizing the network needed a spot to harness the vast amount of reporting done by our affiliates throughout the country, The American Independent was born in May of this year. And now The American Independent will be the source of reporting that will appear on a newly designed version of TWI, which will include the invaluable archives of past TWI reporting.
The American Independent (americanindependent.com) features the best reporting of national importance coming from our eight programs stretching from Colorado to Florida, as well as exclusive coverage from reporters Patrick Caldwell and Luke Johnson in Washington. The work of these and other award-winning AINN journalists throughout the nation will be featured on The American Independent and reposted on TWI. I invite you to visit American Independent and explore.
While we can’t replicate what TWI was, we hope to offer TWI’s loyal, informed, dedicated readership impactful, original, independent-minded content from our entire network in an age when the ability to trust a news site to have a spine and report with tenacity seems increasingly rare. We value your continued support and input as AINN once again embarks into new territory.
