Please take a look at the Newshare Commons proposal entered in the Knight News Challenge. We propose to embed circuit-riding reporters in cafes, libraries, schools and public spaces on a regular schedule as "news mentors" to the public. Our main concern is that libraries may feel unable to host journalism because controversy could lead to problems with municipal authorities who control their budgets. We need to think about an explicit First Amendment "Bill of Rights" for libraries engaged in this hosting. See: http://www.tinyurl.com/newshare (tinyurl dot com slash newshare
