The media aren’t giving Americans the full picture of what’s going on, says Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS News investigative reporter. The mainstream media tend “to censor or block stories that don’t fall in line with the message they want sent to the viewers,” Attkisson explains.
To fill this void, The Heritage Foundation launched The Daily Signal today as our multimedia news site.
In addition to news coverage that is fair, accurate, and trustworthy, The Daily Signal showcases and promotes the conservative commentary and policy analysis of The Heritage Foundation. The Daily Signal establishes direct access to a broad audience, allowing our message to reach everyday Americans unfiltered.
The media landscape has dramatically changed. Newspapers and television stations are losing audiences, while digital, social, and mobile technologies have fundamentally changed the way Americans get their news. These changes undeniably benefit organizations and individuals with high-quality content that matters. It is hard to imagine an organization better positioned to exploit these changes than The Heritage Foundation.
We look forward to working with you to make The Daily Signal a success and to achieve our shared vision of an America where freedom, opportunity, prosperity, and civil society flourish.
