THE GROWLER: a years late followup to some heated discussions about the future of journalism ...
which led to a process diagram sketched on the back of an envelope that was promptly ignored for years.
During the decade that followed, journalism went into a tailspin and is now, effectively, neutered at the traditional point of origin, Main Stream Media, who are now too beholding to the entities they should report on that even the pretense of speaking truth to power is gone.
Then a media echo chamber of silliness on all sides effectively cauterized a Democratic-leaning populace into a zombie-like apathy at the polls.
Since then things have only gotten worse as no side substantively interacts with the brainstems of the American populace.

The Growler is that soil.

We chose the name theGrowler from our remembrances of the our long-since left this mortal coil pet Alaskan Malamute, Attu, named after the western-most Aleutian island.
Attu took great pleasure in growling when she sensed danger.
That being said, here are some links to growlers and some discussion tabs.
