What will the most popular news sources of the future look like?
I’m hopeful for the soon to be launched
. Wikitribune Evidence-based journalism
People today mostly get their news from
TV (not bad) and social media (terrible).
My favourite news source right now is
, just 6 months old. Axios Smart brevity.
Axios covers 7 areas: politics, tech, media trends, health, science, energy, and future of work (AI, robotics, etc.).
They want to deliver the cleanest, smartest, most efficient and trust-worthy experience for readers and advertisers alike.
It was founded by
, former chief political reporter for Mike Allen . I like Politico too, founded in 2007. And Politico Jim VandeHei.
John F. Harris and Jim VandeHei left to become The Washington Post The Politico ‘s editor-in-chief and executive editor, respectively.
So … Washington Post begat Politico begat Axios.
If interested, start by signing up for any of the Axios
My first site was
I-NeedtoKnow.com. Now defunct. That domain name cost me $75 / year, back in the day.
hate 99% of advertisements. All businesses that rely on advertising dread me.
Google and Facebook hate guys like me. Apple and Amazon don’t much care.

I’ve been sending money to
every month for years. It is still rated one of the best hosts though I’ve been Bluehost dissatisfied from the start.
Bluehost sites frequently go down.
When you inquire why, they
blame the customer. 😦
Bluehost is unable to keep servers shared by many people secure. WordPress.com has almost never been hacked.
One guy at Bluehost is super. Matt Greenwood <email@example.com> If you MUST host on a for profit server, I’d recommend you contact him.

free web hosting services. I do pay for some add-on services with WordPress.com. Happy to support that excellent company
I’m recommending WordPress.com, not WordPress.org
