True. The founding principles of the Correspondent(with some additions by me) mirror this:

  • We are your antidote to the daily news grind (Chris Coolsma: publication only after thorough research, checked sources)
  • We do not take ad dollars of any kind (Chris Coolsma: no bias from sponsors)
  • We fight stereotypes, prejudice, and fearmongering : (Chris Coolsma: can only be done with reference to fact checked knowledge and science)
  • We don’t just cover the problem, but also what can be done about it
  • We collaborate with you, our knowledgeable members (Chris Coolsma: the members are critical evaluators)
  • We don’t take the view from nowhere. We tell you where we’re coming from
  • We protect your privacy, by minimizing the personal data we collect
  • We want to be as inclusive as possible
  • We always put journalism before financial gain
  • We believe in transparency and continued self-improvement
