about nsnbc ìnternational
news network and broadcasting collective – international
nsnbc international was established in February 2013, on the basis of a blog that was established by Christof Lehmann in 2011. The decision to create nsnbc international as a daily, international, independent, free to read, free to subscribe on-line newspaper was based on the following realizations.
- There exists a global demand for a high quality, international newspaper, which is truly independent from political parties and organizations, corporate funding and state sponsorship.
- In fact many of the media which are passing themselves of as “alternative” or “independent” are either representing a particular political view, are calling themselves “independent” while receiving semi-state sponsorship, and many are receiving funds from foundations without creating a firewall between fundraising and editorial decisions.
- nsnbc international neither considers such media to be “alternatives” or “independent”. nsnbc international is working at creating a truly independent, worldwide media that satisfies the worldwide need for truthful information, including the dissemination of oppressed information.
- nsnbc international opposes any form of abuse of media for propaganda, for justifying human rights violations or wars under the guise of humanitarian interventions, responsibility to protect and other questionable constructs. In short, we oppose rationalizations and justifications for crimes, and the abuse of media consumer´s best intentions and most noble aspirations. We consider such media practices unethical and criminal.
- Only economically independent journalists can work independently. Therefore, nsnbc international does not require exclusives, and we return about 50 % of all advertising revenue to our contributors, depending on how often their work has been read per month. Our contributors continue earning on their work as long as it is being read. Because advertising barely covers server bills we encourage you to donate a modest monthly amount if you register your subscription. To subscribe go to the bottom of our website at www.nsnbc.me - The donate button is in the right column.
- Some of our contributors have chosen to support nsnbc international by not taking part in the revenue sharing because they are not dependent on earning an income by journalistic work, columns etc..
- We believe that our approach is a model that can function worldwide, and we are planning to compete with state- corporate- and foundation-funded mainstream media worldwide, and in solidarity among our contributors.
- We may publish analysis or opinion from contributors with opposing views and believe that this facilitates much needed public dialog and debate, so our readers can make informed decisions.
- Rather than being anchored in particular political philosophies, particular religious views, etc. we anchor nsnbc international in universally recognized principles of ethics in international law, justice, human rights, peace, conflict resolution, social justice and other universal values.
- We consider nsnbc international as a starting point for the establishment of nsnbc in the worlds major languages, of regional editions, and where it is feasible also national editions. We encourage journalists and investors who want to establish regional or national editions to contact us.
- Good journalism does not know borders, and the need for truthful information as a basis for a just and free political discourse, and ultimately, as a basis for an informed public´s participation in the political discourse is universal. Only an informed citizen can act responsibly.
Because many of our contributors, including scholars who are experts in their fields of reporting, or professional journalists, have been or are suffering the consequences of their ethical standards in form of oppression, unemployment, loss of tenure, assaults and slander, and in the worst case imprisonment or assassination, such as it was the case with our colleague, the Syrian journalist Maja Naser, who was assassinated for exposing the truth about Turkish war crimes in Syria; because relying on donations alone does not allow us to reward our contributors with at least a minimum decent reward, because we believe they deserve a reward for their work, their integrity and the consequences they may be suffering, we have decided to allow advertising on nsnbc through a second or third party provider. Advertising however covers only a minimal part of our expenses. Please support our work and donate to show your appreciation.
Both with regard to the second or third party advertising as well as when you are commenting on nsnbc, or when you are subscribing to nsnbc by e-mail, we assure you, that we adhere to the strictest security, privacy and ethical standards.
Thank you for taking the time to informing yourself.
