Dear Russia Insiders! Time To Hit the Newsbud Crowdfund Groove!

An exciting, new crowdfunded news initiative

(A note from the editor:)  We are familiar with a lot of the folks who along with our great contributor Pepe, are starting Newsbud.  

I heartily endorse the project, and encourage everyone to throw a few $ at Newsbud, even if just a couple, because the more people who get behind them, the more convincing these projects become.

The number of us who speak up is as important as the amount raised.  This one is definitely worth backing!  -  Charles Bausman

It's a great pleasure to address all of you, RI readers, about a new, ambitious, independent multimedia project, Newsbud.

I'm involved in Newsbud after spending almost 15 years at the former Hong Kong-based Asia Times Online, whose brand I represented all across the planet. 

Newsbud will depend on you, the reader – as you can see in this short video.

Here is our site, which explains more: 

No ads. No bought-and-paid-for media. No special interests. No hidden agendas.  


Please make a pledge. Our Kickstarter campaign is live now. It’s been successful so far - but we're still a long way away from our goal.

Be asssured that I plan to have top RI writers on board to boost our international coverage. I'm also available to answer all your questions at  [email protected]  

Many thanks to all – and let’s rock.

- Pepe
