I’m supporting The Correspondent. Because what good is an academic reputation if you aren’t prepared to spend it on something you really believe in?
I’m not interested in manipulative headlines. I’m interested in real journalism with depth, insight and indisputable facts, impeccably resourced and ad-free. That’s why I support The Correspondent.
At the Dutch news organization De Correspondent, journalists share story ideas with subscribers before they write them, so they can harvest community knowledge.
The Correspondent's way of approaching the news business is almost the purest expression of a humane kind of journalism.
I admired De Correspondent's commitment to provide context to what happens in the world and its pledge to put the community at the heart of the reporting.
I am delighted to support De Correspondent’s American adventure and to see its insightful, nuanced stories reach a new audience.
As it launches in the U.S., The Correspondent will introduce new, novel ways to involve readers’ smarts in journalism.
If you believe that our commonalities, rather than our differences, should be constantly highlighted in this rapidly changing and challenging world, I strongly recommend De Correspondent.
Whether or not others chose to emulate it, The Correspondent’s existence is a reminder that people-centred journalism is possible and worth pursuing.
