Problem statement

Large media companies are losing readership from terrible stories, notable bias, no content diversity, and a complete lack of trust in what they publish for their readers. People want "Needle-moving" journalism, not opinion pieces, click-bait headlines, or politically influenced stories. With over 10 Million data points every minute, our journalists know how to read intelligence reports, break down events in real-time in regions all over the world, and decipher information to create the most in-depth and original reporting possible. News you need to know, now.

We are excited to build Atlas News+ and are confident these two can deliver massive value to our brand.
