Big daily newspapers New Brunswick are up since Trump. But who’s doing good local reporting, and investigating things nobody else will? When Samantha Bee sat down with Charlie Kratovil, New Brunswick Today only had about 100 subscribers, at $5 a month. So she decided to adopt it, and help bump up readership – with “a little luck, a sprinkle of civic engagement, and a healthy dose of hedonism.” This clip is so damn much fun to watch. Support local journalism!
