Looking back at the past six years, it is incredible the impact we have had on the country, the internet and the world. It’s more than we could have possibly imagined when we huddled together in the cold dark winter of 2011 in an abandoned IT center in northeast Florida and came up with this influential, life-altering website.
Whether it’s impacting American elections with our hard-hitting coverage, bringing you great interviews with musicians, entertainers and as many famous Canadians as we can find; or honoring our duty to bring you the sad news of a celebrity death, we still take our pledge seriously to fight to print all the news that’s fit to fill 300-400 words of internet space.
Whether it’s changing the conversation or making you think from a different, more enlightened and more moral perspective, or showing you how ignorant, abhorrent and immature your own thought process has been your entire life, we still wake up every day refreshed and energized to do it all over again in the next news cycle.
And through it all, we have never forgotten our core mission statement: To inform and to encourage you, our readers, to go and to do likewise. (It helps that we all got the mission statement tattooed on our chests a week after we purchased our domain name). And we remember that all we do, every letter we type and illustration we design, is done for you and you alone.
It seems like it’s a new landscape on the horizon, as news sites come under more and more fire. We don’t know what the future will hold for important organizations like ours. But we pledge to continue to do our best, to do our duty to God and our country and to obey the internet law; to help other people at all times; to keep ourselves physically strong, mentally awake, and morally straight.
You are now informed. Go and do likewise.
