Launched in 2013 in The Netherlands, De Correspondent is funded solely by its members: 56,000 of them, who pay about $63 a year because they believe in the kind of journalism that is done by its 21 full-time correspondents and 75 freelancers. The leaders of the site announced today that they will soon expand to the U.S. and set up shop in New York.
Jay Rosen — famed media analyst — notes why he’s on board with De Correspondent’s expansion to the USA, and shares what I find to be an inspiring post on what a publication built on reader trust looks like.
If you are at all into publishing more broadly (you should be!) then this is a must read.
