Ever so often at Newslaundry, we try to switch things around: we hear from our subscribers instead of the other way around. After all, we are powered by our subscribers, whose support allows us to pursue honest, independent journalism, and tell the stories that must be told.
NL Chatbox is one of the tools we use for this: a session for subscribers to ask us about our work and our views on issues, to tell us what they like, or don’t, and give us feedback on the work we do.
Our last session of NL Chatbox took place on May 9, where the Newslaundry team answered over 60 questions from subscribers. Conversations ranged from the rationale behind some of our stories, to the media coverage of the killing of the Kashmiri militant Riyaz Naikoo, to what we think about diversity in the newsroom. There were also some exciting updates on the technical front, including a new website!
The next NL Chatbox session will take place on Saturday, May 30, at 7.30 pm IST. Look out for our announcements on social media. We will also send you an email with more information.
What’s included in my subscription?
Independent journalism is not possible until you pitch in. We have already seen what happens in ad-funded models: Journalism takes a backseat and gets sacrificed at the altar of clicks and TRPs.
Stories cost perseverance, time and resources.
