Journalism without a moral position is impossible. Every journalist is a moralist. It’s absolutely unavoidable. A journalist is someone who looks at the world and the way it works, someone who takes a close look at things every day and reports what she sees, someone who represents the world, the event, for others. She cannot do her work without judging what she sees.

Our commitment to explaining the news is a commitment to an outcome not a commitment to any particular article format. We do think, however, that the traditional article format is ripe for reinvention.

Our end goal isn’t telling you what just happened, or how we feel about what just happened, it’s making sure you understand what just happened.

Today, we are better than ever at telling people what's happening, but not nearly good enough at giving them the crucial contextual information necessary to understand what's happened. We treat the emphasis on the newness of information as an important virtue rather than a painful compromise.

The news business, however, is just a subset of the informing-our-audience business  —  and that's the business we aim to be in. Our mission is to create a site that's as good at explaining the world as it is at reporting on it.

“I think being a liberal, in the true sense, is being nondoctrinaire, nondogmatic, non-committed to a cause - but examining each case on its merits. Being left of center is another thing; it's a political position. I think most newspapermen by definition have to be liberal; if they're not liberal, by my definition of it, then they can hardly be good newspapermen. If they're preordained dogmatists for a cause, then they can't be very good journalists; that is, if they carry it into their journalism."

The Philosophers' Mail makes use of popular starting points - the stories a lot of people like to read and talk about already. It is generous to our natural inclinations: to read celebrity gossip, look at erotic images and read shock stories. It is sympathetic (as a starting point) to popular biases. ... We start by acknowledging such attitudes. ... The epochal challenge is to reach the people who don't engage with complex news.

The Philosophers' Mail – hmm.
It isn't a priority to see the worst side of people's minds. The priority is to learn how to trust and think a little bit better of one another.

Journalism is not content. It is not a noun. It need not be a profession or an industry. It is not the province of a guild. It is not a scarcity to be controlled. It no longer happens in newsrooms. It is no longer confined to narrative form.

It is a service. It is a service whose end is an informed public. Journalism helps communities organize their knowledge so they can better organize themselves.

Für die inhaltliche wie auch gestalterische Weiterentwicklung des Journalismus spielen Printmedien schon lange keine Rolle mehr.
Statt zeitgemäße Angebote zu machen, ist man lieber dazu übergegangen, die eigenen Kunden zu beschimpfen.

People interpret criticism completely differently depending on how they see the relationship between themselves and the critic. ...
If we can find a way to tell our stories outside of partisan frames, we might reduce feelings of unfairness. The trick would be to shy away from invoking divisive identities, preferring frames that allow members of a polarized audience to see themselves as part of the same group.
