THANK YOU for writing this! None of the recent reports from mainstream, historically/predominantly-white news publications have provided nuanced, intersectional reporting on this recent wave of journo-created newsletters. Also, so many people ask if I'm going to monetize my newsletter Coronavirus News for Black Folks, but I don't think they understand that ~2,100 subscribers is only going to generate (possibly and ideally) a few hundred dollars a month, and that's before taxes and cuts from SS. That's not nothing, but it's also not a source of income like a non-independent journalism job. Anyways, thanks again!
