To address this problem, TownNews and RealClearWire have partnered to give TownNews' customers—numbering more than 2,000 local media organizations nationwide—access to RealClear Media Group's stockpile of high quality news and opinion from across the political spectrum. Distributed on the TownNews Content Exchange network, this material will be made available to users of the company's digital publishing platforms.
