The Correspondent is a thing !


① memo 20181214 ~ The Correspondent is a thing ! ~ The Correspondent goes global now – 5 years after the dutch news platform ‘De Correspondent’ launched in 2013 with a crowdfunding effort.
The success story of ad-free journalism in Holland … the news organization with a direct connection to readers , the members , now starts to replicate worldwide , with headquarters in the U.S.
The site’s readers or members are a critical part in the ad-free journalism that gets done . Not just because members fund it with their subscriptions, but because interacting with them throughout the process of writing a story is a key part of what The Correspondent does.

Yesterday , after just 1 month , the global crowfunding campaign raised the required $ 2.5 million dollar with the help of over 40,000 founding members , it’s readers from all over the world.

The Correspondent ‘s 10 Founding Principles

We are your antidote to the daily news grind

We do not take ad dollars of any kind

We fight stereotypes, prejudice, and fearmongering

We don’t just cover the problem, but also what can be done about it

We collaborate with you, our knowledgeable members

We don’t take the view from nowhere. We tell you where we’re coming from

We protect your privacy, by minimizing the personal data we collect

We want to be as inclusive as possible

We always put journalism before financial gain

We believe in transparency and continued self-improvement

Yesterday , some minutes before midnight in Holland , the $ 2.5 million dollar was raised , and I posted a screen recording of the fact before midnight. here the link https://youtu.be/rCMM-FqWsSU
