The Problem With The News
In the digital age, keeping up with the news has become stressful. You see, mass media and social media ironically make it even more difficult to understand what’s going on. News is updated constantly, making it almost impossible to follow the context of a story. Cable TV is flooded with hours of speculation rather than simply reporting the facts. They want clicks, ratings, and $. Let’s be honest here, it’s not entirely your fault that you’re struggling to keep up. It’s also theirs.
Introducing The News Memo
In light of these difficulties, we decided to create a brand new method of consuming the news that respects the busyness of your everyday life. The News Memo synthesizes and explains the most crucial news stories of the week in a simple, clean memo. By predicting the questions you might have as a reader, The News Memo allows you to engage with the news in a meaningful, leisurely way. The truth is, you don't need to understand every single story out there. But you should be informed on the most important events of the week. That's what The News Memo is all about.
How It Works
We do the hard work (but we love it!) of keeping up with the top stories of the week in detail. This process involves deciphering out fiction, speculation, and bias, to present the stories as they happened, allowing you as the reader to make your own judgments. The News Memo is sent out every Friday at noon. Just in time for your lunch break or afternoon coffee.
We follow The New York Times, BBC, and The Wall Street Journal as our primary sources.
