HOW TO CONTACT THE BALTIMORE CHRONICLE
When contacting us by email, please DO NOT SEND ATTACHMENTS; we accept email in plain text only. We will contact you if we want images. We do not accept telephone calls; all readers and others who wish to reach us should do so by email to email@example.com. This no-phone-call policy was instituted in September 2005 because we were unable to keep up with the high volume of phone calls we were receiving from all over the world. Most especially, we tired of receiving phone calls from persons who are paid to attempt to place public relations stories in the media. The interruptions, especially the "follow-up calls," were intolerable. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

About Baltimore News Network, Inc.IN 1989, Baltimore News Network, Inc. (BNN), a nonprofit corporation, was established by a group of concerned citizens who believe that the mainstream media offer a narrow perspective of the news. Too frequently these news sources ignore or trivialize progressive or alternative viewpoints. BNN's goals include fostering public information exchange through various means, such as book and film discussion groups, informal dinners offering a chance to meet important leaders, and for nearly a decade operating BNN Books (at 10 West 25th Street) as an outlet for information until its building was torn down to make way for a CVS.
As of July 16, 2003, Baltimore News Network, Inc. acquired the 31-year-old Baltimore Chronicle from its founder and publisher, Larry Krause, and his wife, Alice Cherbonnier, its managing editor.
Baltimore News Network, Inc. is supported by members in various financial categories, and actively seeks grant monies to underwrite public service publishing and media awareness projects. Thank you for your encouragement and support.
