New Indy Media & Blog in Alabama

A new Independent Media and Blog has popped up in Alabama.
Locust Fork is described as a new media organization developed with the mission to serve your news and literary needs like no news organization or media company that has come before.

They were written about in The Huntsville Times last week regarding their mission and coverage of Alabama politics.

The news site and blog were founded by Glynn Wright who has taught at Loyola University and has written for the Dallas Morning News, the New York Times, the Christian Science Monitor and Gambit Weekly.

I am most excited to see Independent Media make it's way to Alabama, especially during an election year. The mainstream media will have a much harder time pretending there are only two parties and two candidates from which to choose in this election.
