The Detroit Sunday Journal was a weekly newspaper published from November 19, 1995 through November 21, 1999 by striking workers from The Detroit News and The Detroit Free Press. It was staunchly pro-union, and focused on labor issues as well as local news. It was one of the longest-running "temporary" newspapers ever.
There were calls for it to become a daily paper in the Detroit area, given its left-leaning tendencies and pro-union focus. The calls went unheeded, however, and it closed down as the Detroit Newspaper strike was called off by the six unions participating in it.

“What the Journal posits is not the tragic question, the Madmans question: Who am I?, but the comic question, the Bewildered Mans question: Am I? A comica comedian, thats what the Journal keeper is.”
—Roland Barthes (19151980)
“Im a Sunday School teacher, and Ive always known that the structure of law is founded on the Christian ethic that you shall love the Lord your God and your neighbor as yourselfa very high and perfect standard. We all know the fallibility of man, and the contentions in society, as described by Reinhold Niebuhr and many others, dont permit us to achieve perfection.”
—Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
