More independent journalism hits the web

David Appell has picked up the baton of independent journalism and is asking for a modest donation for a story on the Sugar Association.

David Appell over at Quark Soup has picked up the baton of independent, reader-funded journalism. He is investigating a story on the Sugar Association, the World Health Organization and Congress. He’s asking for $250 from readers to report the story on his blog first — $5 from -40- 50 readers. (A lot more modest than the $10,000 I asked for!)
Dave’s a freelance science writer with a good resume and a nice collection of clips. In other words, he’s a real journalist. I urge people to support him, since I’m about to put my money where my mouth is and pop him $5. Let’s show the world Back-to-Iraq wasn’t a one-time stunt.
