Would it be possible to issue a single edition of a newspaper that publishes all the best, most hard-hitting COVID19 articles in full, in one place, deliverable through the mail box?
It may well be the best medium available to us, as leaflets are much less likely to draw and hold attention and are generally associated with low quality advertising. The MSM on the other hand is better but getting fair coverage is practically impossible. The internet is mostly free and a great medium once one has the impetus to research, but due to people following like-minded others and tech giants’ partiality I worry that all our tweets mostly preach to the converted.
We would need to compile the list of articles, get author consent and do the pre-print design, arrange it all in pages of the right format. Then crowdfund for the printing, get the printed copies delivered in locations across the country and finally deliver through doors. Great cost savings can be made if done at scale – 1K copies of 8 page traditional broadsheet format cost £819 but 10K copies cost £1559, delivery included.
