I remember the glory years of the underground press in the 1960’s. They were irreverent, loud and disrespectful. They also occasionally wrote great investigative articles and opinions.
Most of them are now just lifestyle publications that have no bite at all.
I recently ran across the website for the old underground newspaper the LA Free Press. They have also apparently started to publish a print version as well.
It felt like the old days with very punchy and hard hitting articles. Of course, most of what they published is hysterically wrong but I had to respect their uncomprimising attitude. It was refreshing in an era of political mush. catboxer’s blog | Los Angeles Free Press
