A low cost newspaper, forty pages of recycled blank paper filled with handwritten “news”, exclusive news.
No duplication, no distribution, no reprint, no segmentation, just rotten news.
Or a news that is not,
Or a news that is,
Or a news that,
Or just a news.

Old news about the news reads:
“Five independent magazines and a weekly newspaper have been charged by Ethiopia’s Justice Ministry, a move that may add to the long lists of shuttered publications and Ethiopian journalists in exile. In a press release issued August 4, the ministry accused the journals of publishing false information, inciting violence, and undermining public confidence in the government, news reports said.”
