The Connecticut Centinal is the state’s premier investigative newspaper. Long suffering from an absence of patriotic media, Connecticut is in dire need of an organization which will confront, and highlight, corruption in the jurisdiction.
Connecticut is an historic state with a long and honorable reputation of defending freedom. The Connecticut Centinal will follow in CDM’s tradition of believable and trustworthy news as we rebuild the American republic from the cradle of liberty.
"The next successful enterprise following that of the Greens appeared in October, 1773, as the Norwich packet and the Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island weekly advertiser. In addition to its pretentious title, this paper boasted a new font of long-primer type and a large title-cut of a ship or packet. It sold for six shillings eight pence a year. Happily the name was later shortened to simply the Norwich-packet. It was first edited by Alexander and James Robertson and John Trumbull. The Robertsons were Scotsmen, formerly of New York, who attempted the very difficult task of trying to preserve a detached and neutral point of view in face of the impending war. Because of their impartiality they were accused of Toryism, and public censure caused their return to New York in 1776, after which year Trumbull alone kept up the paper until his death in 1802. It was continued for some years longer by his widow and then by his sons as the Connecticut Centinel."
(There were several different spellings of the word in the late 1800s -- Centinal, Centinel, and Sentinel. We specifically chose Centinal.)
The Tercentenary Commission of the State of Connecticut, Committee on Historical Publications, wrote in 1935 in its publication 'Connecticut Newspapers in the Eighteenth Century'.
