A publication that presents as a regular newspaper has been appearing locally. The Chambana Sun runs overwhelmingly partisan far-right-leaning articles though it does not disclose its right-wing connections. Near identical editions under different mastheads appear in other Illinois communities.
On October 31, 2022 NPR published an article and audio by David Folkenflik about "zombie papers". Full story is here.
The article, titled "Right-wing 'zombie' papers attack Illinois Democrats ahead of elections," begins with: "Since late summer, many Illinois residents have been receiving newspapers that they haven't paid for nor, in many cases, even heard of. Each paper bears a clear-cut tagline: Real data, real news. And each publication that shows up in driveways and mailboxes carries a partisan punch that's blatant, but not formally disclosed."
