WikiTribune Aims to Distribute 'News by the People and for the People'

According to The Guardian, Wikipedia’s co-founder, Jimmy Wales, “is launching a new online publication which will aim to fight fake news by pairing professional journalists with an army of volunteer community contributors.” WikiTribune will be crowdfunded, and it will cover topics such as U.S. and U.K. politics and specialist science and technology. “Those who donate will become supporters, who in turn will have a say in which subjects and story threads the site focuses on. And Wales intends that the community of readers will fact-check and subedit published articles.”
