About Independent News Media
Independent Newsmedia is a unique publishing and printing company that supports every Americans First Amendment rights and encourages and assists citizens in exercising those rights responsibly.
We pursue this mission by publishing community newspapers, by providing printing services to other publishers, and by creating citizen-driven community websites for the 21st Century and beyond. Our unique structure is designed to maintain our independence.
We pay taxes like any other company, but there are no shareholders, no dividends are paid, and all after-tax profits are reinvested in serving our mission. We are held in sacred trust by a rotating group of five trustees who believe in our mission and are pledged not to benefit personally from their involvement.
Independent Newsmedia pays for the Associated Press news services. We recognize that sometimes AP stories dont have balanced and purposeful neutrality that we strive in our own stories. AP is our most practical and affordable source of national, world and sports news and photos.
