A new type of news organization
launching in a few weeks
Just The News.com is launching in a few weeks, committed to just reporting facts from journalists with a long record of public trust and excellence. In an era where opinion and supposition are too often substituted for fact and where journalists rush to get things first and hope their stories are correct, Just The News.com will stand out by returning to the bedrock promise of getting news first, but first getting it right. It will be exclusive news you can trust.
Just The News.com is a back-to-the-future initiative where old-fashioned, honest and exclusive reporting is delivered in a neutral voice, but delivered through the modern channels of YouTube, podcasting, e-books and social media. And in a twist of old and new, Just The News.com journalists will deliver unprecedented transparency by offering a Dig Deeper tool on their Web site that allows consumers to see the underlying core materials and evidence that substantiate each story. These embeds will replace the shaky promise of modern journalists to "just trust us, we're right" with "we trust readers to look at the facts and make up their own minds."
Just The News.com is sticking just to the facts, without regard to outcome or personal bias. We will construct original, exclusive content with a neutrality and transparency that lets readers, viewers and listeners make up their own minds.
Just The News.com will be based in Washington, with an eye toward covering events in the capital for those who live outside it. It will consist of four divisions dedicated to Web reporting, video journalism, podcasting and long-form nonfiction book publishing.
It's mission can be succinctly summarized by three brand statements:
- Honest Journalism, Trusted Reporters
- Information Without Indoctrination
- Rising Above Rhetoric
