The Correspondent , Nov 22, 2018. – Do you want to change journalism with me?
Choose what you pay for The Correspondent !
I like to tell you about The Correspondent …. a new movement for unbreaking news. I am a founding member (of the original Dutch version) for 5 years now …. and I think you might like to join as well !
Right now they are crowdfunding, and they have asked for my help. They need 2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.
News as we know it leaves us cynical, divided, and less informed. Together we can change that!
The Correspondent is ad-free and wants to redefine what news is about, shifting the focus from the sensational to the foundational.
They need 2.2 million euro’s/2.5 million dollars to launch an English version.
If you join, you become a pioneer.
You can choose what you pay and if they don’t reach their goal (I hope not, of course) you get your money back 🙂
If you’d like to join: you can find more information here in The Correspondent
