INN’s vision is to build a nonprofit, nonpartisan news network that ensures all people in every community have access to trusted news. We can’t and won’t ignore the domestic terrorism that occurred at the Capitol on Wednesday, January 6: this was a traumatic event, and it reinforced racist double standards in American society.
While some will continue to attack the media, we will continue to support our member organizations as they deliver fact-based information about the issues essential to the well being of our people and our democracy. Violent behavior is an act chosen by an individual, not directly caused by misinformation and disinformation, but we hope that an abundance of accessible, reliable news can help drown out propaganda.
The INN team is grateful for journalists risking their safety and sanity to bring the truth to light, whether that’s in their own communities or at the Capitol itself. Thank you, and be safe.
