The Funding Behind the HawaiiFreePress Paper

I’ve often wondered who funds the paper that becomes kitty litter known as the HawaiiFreePress.

It’s primary writer/editor appears to be Andrew Walden.

The paper appears to have a website coming online soon.

My question is… who actually funds this garbage?

I did a quick search of the Websites Domain and found the following:

So it looks like it’s proxy registered.

But by WHOM?

A recent comment on Hunters Blog mentions

“…I e-mailed Walden a while ago and asked him who funded his paper. He told me that was none of my business. The boy has a lot to hide, obviously….”

So does anyone have any ideas?

  1. Amusing to watch you circulate your ignorance around and then discuss it with commentors sharing their ignorance. Say you worked for the DOE, eh… figures.

    Damon – It’s even more amusing watching you comment here anonymously from your IP address 67.142.130.34 … I take anonymous comments with a grain of salt or about as seriously as I do the HFP

  2. […] always wondered who is funding the Hawaii Free Press. Damon Tucker raises this question once again here.My best guess is probably at least one (or more) ultra conservative/libertarian group has been […]

  3. sorry posting again…but remembered something…are they affiliated with talon news like the hawaii reporter guys?

    Damon – Don’t be sorry for posting again. I appreciate all comments both negative and positive.
    I’m not really sure who they are affiliated with. Thus I pose the question to you folks who probably know much more than me.

  4. my guess is their funding comes from guys like the heritage foundation and cato institute like the grassroots hawaii guys and hawaii reporter….or some subsidiary like the abramoff scheme coming from guys like discovery institute or evergreen foundation….all part of a concerted effort that seems to have played itself out on the mainland but seems to have found new life in hawaii especially attacking oha and ksbe…..

    Damon – I do notice Malia Zimmerman articles in there at times… but I think Hawaiireporter is funded by local advertising. Malia does a lot of hard work and I’m amazed that she allows some of the crap that flies on her website.
