One of our core beliefs at CrowdNews is that journalists should have the freedom to define the life of a story without it being time-boxed, 24-hour-news-cycled, or truncated.
We think journalists, to explore and accurately report on our world, must be given the opportunity to tell a story in its fullest.
CrowdNews introduces the Newstream. Newstreams give our member journalists the freedom to define the life of a story.
A Newstream consists of components of information and content that comprise a story, presented over time.
We call each component of a Newstream a Dispatch. A Dispatch can be a text article, a video clip, a map, an audio file, or other media.
A complete Newstream might be one dispatch, or 30. It might all be presented in one day, or over the course of a year. It might take the form of text, or video, or audio, or a combination. (CrowdNews is media agnostic.)
Our audience subscribes to specific Newstreams, not to CrowdNews itself.
When you subscribe to a Newstream, you support that particular journalist.
The majority of your support for that Newstream will go to the journalist, not CrowdNews.
We are dedicated to the survival of quality journalism.
