Reveal the stories that matter

Mind The Facts aims to be the international platform where independent journalists can publish their stories that matter to reach an international paying audience.

Investigative journalism

Investigative journalism unveils relevant facts to the public. The role independent journalism plays as a watchdog is indispensable for democracy. It is important to expose illegal practices, abuse of power and corruption. But investigative journalism is time consuming and the revenues are uncertain.

Language bubbles

European journalist have little possibilities to reach an international audience and are struggling making digital revenues. Language barriers limit journalists to their local markets and prohibit journalist to tell their stories outside of these language barriers. Most of the international news is offered in English by American and British media. They report from the perspective of the audiences within their local markets. Most of the reports from continental Europe are not available in English and as a result have less impact. Mind the Facts will help journalists reach a wider audience and it will give Europeans access to journalism with European perspective.

Code of Ethics

Revenues will exclusively come from paying consumers. Mind the Facts does not offer any type of advertising or branded content. This principle guarantees real objective journalism and prevents the platform from intrusion of fake news. All content must be produced by the SPJ Code of Ethics as truth-finding is the most important value in modern day journalism and one of the most important things consumers are willing to pay for.

Transparency

Mind the Facts wants to boost digital revenues for non-English speaking journalists so they can make a proper living with their work. People pay for the stories that matter, they support journalists directly. The audience will be able to support journalists directly. They will be able to pay per read or make donations. The platform facilitates payments through blockchain technology to offer complete transparency. Journalists will get 50% of all revenues. 25% will be used to pay the editors from Mind the Facts that select, translate and publish the stories. 25% will be used for technology, design and promotion expenses. It provides all distributors insights in the revenues and consumer behaviour.
