Our mission is two-fold: First, we strive to be the most innovative, successful, results-driven training ground for up-and-coming journalists in America. We train, mentor and launch the next generation of reporters, all the while providing full time salary and benefits. Second, we investigate and tell stories that are overlooked or intentionally ignored due to media bias. Then we push those stories through our 300+ licensed media network partners to reach millions of Americans.
The results of our efforts can be seen not only in the size of our audience but in the impact our reporting has made. Our content is relevant to the general public as well as lawmakers; prominent media figures and influential grassroots activists. Our work is disseminated through a growing global distribution network, driving conversations into homes and across the desks of policymakers. The goal is for our stories to provoke change, incite debate, and challenge partisans of all political stripes.
When we launched in 2011, local and regional newspapers were receding and national media companies were downsizing, unable to produce news that mattered to readers. In a short period of time, and in spite of this challenging operational environment, we raised a group of journalists committed to the guiding principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free markets, and pledged to produce trustworthy news reporting. We rival and often exceed traditional media outlets in terms of quality and impact.
We advance our mission through our Journalism Fellow Training Program, where we train, develop, and launch the careers of a new generation of non-liberal reporters through an intensive two-year program. Alumni from this program have been hired by CNN, Newsweek, CBS, Business Insider, Fox News, Investor Business Daily, The Washington Examiner and many other notable media outlets.
