Im a medical doctor at Ecuador (yep, South America)… and I just watch you on an interview with Max Keiser. So I googled your website and it feels authentic. Just want to say thanks for the job you and other independent journalist do.
I’d be quite happy if you take a look and comment something about Latin America’s journalism behavior (I guess you can imagine…and yes it sucks)

Raul, thanks for the kind comments. Yes, I follow the plight of journalism in Latin America. Right now, my focus has been on Mexico. Another journalist was just murdered, BTW. See: http://fronterasdesk.org/content/10615/3rd-journalist-killed-mexico-month. I also include the deaths of activists like Berta Cerceres in that trend. Unfortunately, the news business here in the US is all-too blind to what is happening in its own hemisphere…and it is particularly galling when you consider that many of the problems are outgrowths of US interference.

I also saw you on the Keiser Report and was very impressed by your thoughts on current social and economic conditions. Give Max my best for his awesome show and also for directing me to your site. Upon visiting, one of the first items catching my attention was “This Space Available.” Having been a newspaper publisher in a former life, I knew exactly what it meant. I was a bit dismayed that there were no ads there, but also brightened by the idea that maybe I could be the first of what I hope are many advertisers for your site.
Now, don’t get too excited. I’m not offering money, but an opportunity. I’ve been on the web since 1997 and can still remember LinkExchange, one of the first actual peer-to-peer ad networks. Sadly, it fell by the wayside and was replaced with the “do no evil” of Google AdSense and AdWords. While I run those on my site, I know it’s a no-win long run situation, as Google will suck the life out of it (they’re doing a fine job, thus far), so I’d like to offer a straight up exchange of either links or graphic ads. I operate two sites which may be of interest to you: Downtown Magazine (http://www.dtmagazine.com), my flagship, and Money Daily (http://money daily.blogspot.com), which might accommodate your niche. On the latter, I’ve tried to get it off the blogspot platform and onto my own servers, but Google has made that extremely difficult (go figure!). In any case, drop me a line and let’s see if we can eliminate a middle man.
Thanks, and keep up your fine work. The world needs more people like you.
