A year ago today, we set out to do something completely different. We created a media organization that would tell you the truth. We started with the deep belief that the American people, and people around the world, deserved better from their journalists. They deserved the unvarnished facts, free from platitudes or propaganda, and we were determined to give those to them.
Since we are one of you, we knew that you were very much a part of this endeavor, and it has been our focus since the very first post to treat you as a member of our team. We hope we have succeeded in making you a member of the family.
Our tips box has been filled to the brim with information and story ideas. We have taken many of those beginnings and done the work to ferret them out and see what *really* was going on with that representative, or statistic you sent. We have had distinguished members of our community approach us to submit work that no other outlet would print, because it was too “controversial”. After those works were checked and determined to be factually accurate, we printed them with pride. Sometimes the truth isn’t a pleasant experience, and sometimes it shocks you to the core. You can handle the truth. We know you can, and we know you wouldn’t have it any other way.
Our amazing team of writers has grown in leaps and bounds since July 9, 2019, and we are thrilled to continue to add brilliant members to our contributor family. We are also expanding staff to provide you with more up to the minute news, without spin, and we have plans to grow even further.
As CEO and Editor in Chief, I started this company with a deep and burning desire to change the world through the spread of truthful information. I was determined to do it with integrity as a guiding principle, and I have dedicated my entire life to helping to provide you with the information you need to make intelligent decisions. We are just getting started, and it is far from over.
We have a serious threat facing our country right now, and I walk alongside you in trying to navigate through these uncharted waters; we are taking deliberate steps, and I do believe we will emerge victorious. But the future is up to you and I, and we need to do everything in our power to ensure it is a bright one.
We need your help to keep going. You have all been absolutely amazing so far, and I count on the fact that you are as invested in this as I am. We can not succeed without transforming the news media. All of us are working as hard as we can to ensure that transformation. We will keep bringing you Actual Journalism™. We hope you will keep spreading that Journalism around the world like a wildfire. It is YOU who guarantees our success, something I don’t take lightly, and am honored to be a part of.
Please take a moment to look through some of the absolutely amazing accomplishments we have had in our first year. All of this was done organically, by you. We have not spent a dollar on advertising in our first year. The growth and amazing numbers and achievements you see below, are simply because of YOU, the reader. We are infinitely blessed you are along for this wild ride, and we will keep fighting to bring integrity back to this profession. With you by our side, there is no way we will fail.
As captain of this ship, I have my eye on success. I will not gaze in any other direction. May God bless the United States of America, and our friends around the world.
