From News Times:

Greenwich native Charles Bausman has been living in Moscow for the better part of 29 years, raising a family while working as an investor in agribusiness in Russia. In the past dozen years or so, he’s developed a perspective on Russia he said he does not see reflected in western news reporting.

So six months ago, he created an alternative news website called Russia-Insider.com that is getting millions of international viewers — and Russian attention as well.

“This is citizen journalism,” said Bausman. “It’s like an online movement, user generated, democratic. People are very devoted to the site. It’s gone beyond what I could imagine.”
