What is the Fargo Phantom?

Publisher’s Response

Fargo Phantom is a collaboration of local professionals, financial advisors, entrepreneurs, educators, physicians, farmers and what many may refer to as a “crackpot.”

All writers have selected a “Phantom Name” due to the controversial content and editorial mission of the publication. The decision was made to help protect their professional standings in the community.

This underground newspaper is dedicated to seeking truth and justice and revitalizing the role of the free press as a guardian of liberty. We remain faithful to the traditional and central role of a free press in a free society – as a light exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power. This is why we are not accepting advertising for this venture. This is why we have assembled a arsenal of writers from all walks of life and income status.

Fargo Phantom is also designed to stimulate a free-and-open debate about political ideas facing the Red River Valley. Through educating and advocacy, we will continue to promote democracy. One constant motivation is the old-fashioned notion that the principal role of the free press in a free society is to serve as a watchdog on government - to expose corruption, fraud, waste and abuse wherever and whenever it is found.

Alternative to the Fargo Forum: Fargo And The Smoking Ban.

Fargo voters will decide Tuesday if they want their city to have a more comprehensive smoking ban or keep smoking prohibitions as they are today.

The two smoking measures on the city ballot are in some ways an extension of a vote nearly four years ago, when Fargoans chose from three smoking ban options.

Measure 2 would prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces, including bars, truck stops and rental halls. That’s taking the city’s current smoking ban up a notch.

Measure 3 would prohibit smoking in indoor workplaces, except for enclosed bars that prohibit patrons under the age of 21, designated areas of truck stops and J.T. Cigarro Tobacco Bar
