As of today, the truly excellent media filter & news digest Cursor.org
is suspending publication.
For almost a decade, the Cursor crew have done a truly admirable job
of providing an antidote to the corporate media. Through a daily round-up of news stories & commentary, they helped to provide critical context
to the flurry of media stories that deluges us every day. Unfortunately, they lost their main source of funding
in 2007. They've been trying to make a go of it through reader contributions but this has apparently not proved to be sustainable.
They are also behind the excellent Media Transparency
, an organization that documents & explores the connections between conservative philanthropy & the media.
