"Media criticism does exist in America. But by and large, it is not citizen-based criticism designed to make media a better source of information in a democracy. Instead, it is a cynical manipulation of the discourse designed to silence even the mildest dissent from the conservative, militantly pro-corporate dogma that has come to pass for news in an era when "reporters" brag about the size of their American-flag lapel pins."  -

iWYNN  - Interactive World Youth News Network - will be a global news service that empowers people and communities in the traditional spirit of a free and democratic society. iWYNN doesn't pretend to be objective - it is of the people, by the people, for the people... the global people, that is.  iWYNN will provide the information that serves the global public interest, rather than the private interest of the individuals who finance it. 

iWYNN is committed to filling the gap left by the major news organizations who have stopped serving traditional news functions essential to a vibrant democracy in order to better serve their bottom line. iWYNN will broaden the scope of traditional news by covering issues from the perspective of the large number of people typically left out of the democratic process and "marketplace of ideas" - youth, women of every color, men of color who don't preach misogyny and consumerism, disabled people and poor people.

iWYNN also is committed to providing its journalists with the resources necessary to perform comprehensive and meaningful investigative reporting.

iWYNN is committed to delivering this news in creative and interactive ways, avoiding the prefabricated public relations press and video releases and the conflict-oriented "if it bleeds, it leads" formats that dissemble and "entertain" rather than inform and empower.

Run by young journalists who refuse to sell out the traditional principles of journalism for money, iWYNN will investigate and report the news people need and want to know in order to live healthier, more democratic lives.  From insite's globally responsive perspective, iWYNN will encourage people to become more active local and global citizens and make clear how decisions seemingly local often have broad, global consequences that may redound to their benefit or detriment in the future.

iWYNN will get input from real people on the street who are actually affected by the issues, not just the pundits and theorists of the day who sit at arms length from the reality of the average citizen.

Tapping into the perspective and creativity of youth and utilizing digital technology, iWYNN will have more cameras and more journalists in more countries for more hours than any other news organization on the planet.

iWYNN's classroom division, staticalignment, will provide a globally responsive alternative to Channel One and CNN’s "Newsroom" - which provide free "educational" TV shows and "classroom guides" to high school and middle school students and teachers, featuring advertisements for a vast array of commercial products and entertainment.
