This is the only major news source that I have seen that is committing to ongoing coverage on the fight over public lands. Hats off to The Guardian.

The inspiration for This Land is Your Land came directly from you, our readers. When the Guardian US covered Republican congressman Jason Chaffetz of Utah attempting to sell off 3.3m acres of national land earlier this year, the piece attracted close to a million readers, and generated 61,000 comments on Facebook.

The Guardian online does not necessitate subscriptions, unlike most other major papers today, so they asked readers to help them fund the coverage by raising 50k. From what I saw, it was raised in 1 day. The coverage started June 5th.

I guess its taking a UK based news outlet to step up and give consistent coverage to this issue that effects us all. Kudos to them.
