“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.” In order for a participatory democracy to be effective the populace needs to be well informed which is seldom the case in today’s age of lengthy, biased, propaganda driven news.
The Brief Bulletin is a politically, financially, editorially independent digital journalism initiative that stands for objective, non-partisan journalism with the motive to inform and empower the people. It strives to put forth incisive insights, authoritative analysis, independent editorials on past events, current issues and progressive trends.
In a world of quick bites, there is a little scope for lengthy news articles with technical jargons and in the face of a disturbing trend of merely glancing at the headlines and not reading the full report, there is a demand for simple and brief news content. The Brief Bulletin fills this lacuna by bringing to the citizens simplified news in brief for effective assimilation with the goal to proffer maximum amount of value in the minimum amout of time.
We aim to be a platform that revives professional standards of ethical journalism, revolutionises the way news is delivered and gives people a voice by accepting and publishing their articles, pictures and other submissions.
HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?
The Brief Bulletin covers news in a comprehensive yet concise manner.
We value quality content and so we publish articles, pictures and other submissions without considering work experience. We are the platform that will give you a voice, we are the platform that you have been looking for.
The founding premise of The Brief Bulletin is; if our democracy is to thrive, the citizens need to be informed and responsible, for which we need to do away with the “reading headlines only” culture.
This can only happen if complex and overwhelming news is made simple, understandable and readable.
Our mission is to revolutionise the way news is delivered and events are explained.
We don’t want to target a small minority of readers, we want every citizen to be a reader.
