Comment on CPUSA newspaper online

Could this guy at least get the CPUSA's name right? Fact-checker anyone?

Black and White and Red No More: Communist Paper Goes Online-Only
By Mark Fitzgerald
Editor and Publisher

CHICAGO Readers of the nation's official Communist newspaper -- unite, you have only your links to lose!

The United States Communist Party has shut down the print edition of its People's Weekly World newspaper, the successor to the Daily Worker, to go online-only. People's Weekly World is now producing a PDF version for its Web site each week, although it is also offering daily news online.

In a note to readers, Editor Teresa Albano said the Chicago-based PWW is also considering a downloadable daily version of the paper.

"Perhaps, with the wind at our back and successful fundraising efforts, a regular printable daily digest could be a doable goal in the not-too-distant future," she wrote.

"The Daily Worker began in Chicago in January 1924," Albano added. "This is our 85th year of 'fighting words.' We're very excited about this new venture, and look forward to your continued involvement and support."
