Our story is really rare.
The news industry is in a terrible state of disruption and has been since the arrival of the Internet. For CTNewsJunkie to still be here after 10 years is very much an anomaly. Thousands of news websites and blogs have come and gone — too many to count. It’s not hard to figure out why.
