Anderson Valley Advertiser
The Anderson Valley Advertiser is a small but well known newspaper. Founded in 1955 and published by Bruce Anderson in Anderson Valley, California since 1984. Originally a local community based paper, The AVA, under a motto borrowed from the French Revolution:
Fanning the Flames of Discontent! Peace to the Cottages! War on the Palaces!
and the quotes
Be as radical as reality. - Lenin.
Newspapers should have no friends. - Joseph Pulitzer
has become a much lauded and lambasted voice of the common man against corporations and the landed gentry. With a prescient mixture of local, state and national politics, and anchored by what may be the most literate 3 pages of letters from readers in any paper in the world, the "Country Weekly That Tells It Like It Is", goes after all sides - liberal, conservative, yuppie, hippie with equal elan.
- Alexander Cockburn
- Jeffery St. Clair
As of November, 2004 the Anderson Valley Advertiser was sold to a former reporter for the paper. Bruce Anderson now lives in Eugene, Oregon, where he unsuccessfully tried to start a new paper called The AVA Oregon. "I'm out of money, and out of business," Anderson wrote in the Feb. 3, 2005 final issue.
