What’s happening in Boston – and in Greensboro, too – is a problem. SFCV, CVNC, and CVNA have far better and more ethical solutions. Support your local 501c3 arts journal. Don’t pay commercial papers to do what they ought to be doing routinely, as part of their nominal commitment to “public service” that used to be at the core of their mandate to operate news outlets. And for Pete’s sake don’t pay them with funds from non-profit foundations!
