The Correspondent - 100% Independent and In-depth Journalism & Digital News
100% Independent and In-depth Journalism & Digital News
A few years ago, a new way of Journalism was born in the Netherlands. Journalist who figured they could not execute their job independently anymore due to advertisers demands and constraints, founded The Correspondent.
The Correspondent revenue model is based on subscription fee only. No advertisers income at all, therefor they have 100% freedom in what and how they write. This model became a success. Maybe also due to the freedom to read their articles on social media (eg Facebook) free of charge and everybody is allowed to use the content as well, again free of charge.
Since last year, The Correspondent has an english version, and have subscribers from more than 130 countries. In September, they will - officially - go full swing with their english version.
Check it out and see for yourself what it means when journalists don't have to obey rules by advertisers.
