Check out “Exploring News by the Amish Online,” an interesting New York Times article about an Amish newspaper, The Budget, the Internet, and the original citizen journalism.
The Budget, whose staff is comprised of non-Amish, now has a website, which got a lot of Amish subscribers and contributors upset.
The paper is generally written by contributors from around Amish communities. If they write 12 times a year, they get the printed paper for free. So about 10 percent of their readers write reports each month.
