Special people, veteran and civilian, will share their thoughts about today’s military and veterans.
Remember those “Subject Matter Experts” and our Advisory Board? Here’s where you will find our reader’s questions and their answers. Particularly interesting or important items will be shared as editorials.
You are viewing the first internet platform populated by veteran journalists whose voice and real-world experience will help correct MSM’s often tone-deaf rendering of military and veteran stories, issues, and aspirations.
We can thank the co-founders of Military Veterans in Journalism (MVJ), Russell Midori and Zack for their role in bringing Now Hear This into existence. Our reward and yours? Access to great talent. MVJ’s reward? A membership that will gain further media experience and exposure as well as earnings from their work.
Why is more exposure and experience of importance to these journo’s? Jobs. Only two percent of America’s newsroom staff are veterans even though veterans comprise roughly 10% of America’s population. This needs correcting. We’re going to help with that.
What is also important is the scrutiny we will be giving these stories. Stories employing misinformation and disinformation will be yanked. Personal politics and points of view are fair game – if that slant is acknowledged and the story factually and accurately solid.
Just like the good old days – with a modern sensibility and responsibility.
