It was only a matter of time before low-ratings, CNN-failed-anchor Campbell Brown – who slumbers on the board of Turnaround for Children – came up with a new way to rake in cash – start a “nonprofit.”

Brown is calling her new slush fund “The Seventy Four.”

It’ll be a “nonprofit, nonpartisan online newsroom aimed at driving a much-needed conversation about reforming America’s education system,” according to PRNewswire.

The site will “pursue stories about the education of our 74 million children in honest, fearless, and relentless terms in an effort to turn the tide and reinstate the U.S. as the global education leader,” PRN reported.

“The future of our country is predicated on a strong education system that serves all 74 million of America’s children. Unfortunately, for far too long, special interests have prioritized their own needs over the well-being of our students and have not been held accountable,” Brown told PRNewswire. “We are long overdue for an honest conversation about what works and what doesn’t work. That’s why we started The Seventy Four, a newsroom with an unapologetic point of view that will serve as a platform for those without a voice.”

What-ever.

Brown must be getting advice from her bosom buddy, Pam Cantor, who heads the highly unsuccessful nonprofit Turnaround for Children Inc.

You’ve seen Turnaround’s results. Wait. we mean lack of results. LOL.

Here’s just an example of how Turnaround has the touch.
