The Madison Free Press
A privately owned not-for-profit website.
"Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits, "The Barn Yard". The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do."
The Madison Free Press is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to exposing mismanagement, corruption, and law-breaking in our local government. We push for transparency and accountability, and we work to preserve and strengthen the rights guaranteed to the press under the First Amendment.
Since emerging in 1996, we have been a home to local citizens who feel disenfranchised by local media. We are a local news destination not controlled by corporate interests or politicians. Our success is the results of the only really true facts.
The Madison Free Press is built on the recognition that this kind of transparency journalism — doesn't just happen. It requires dogged work by our editors, and often, the courage of whistleblowers and others who work to ensure that the Madison/Jefferson County public actually learns what it has a right to know.
Opinions expressed on The Free Press are those of the individual posters and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of The Free Press or its operators/editors.
As a privately owned web site, we reserve the right to edit or remove comments that contain spam, advertising, vulgarity, threats of violence, racism, anti-Semitism, or personal/abusive attacks on other users. The same applies to trolling, the use of multiple aliases, or just generally being a jerk. Enforcement of this policy is at the sole discretion of the site administrators and repeat offenders may be blocked or permanently banned without warning.
