Our Principles

Magnifying glass
The future of media is radically transparent
To regain the public’s trust, the media must pull aside the curtain and let the sun shine into the production process.
Media
Trust equals data plus context
Bylines are not enough. Trust starts with transparency, but it's ultimately earned through context.
Account
Protect privacy above all else
Transparency has its limits; we err on the side of privacy and personal data ownership.
Open lock
No hiding behind algorithms
Pressland is itself transparent; the strength of our data rests on it being accurate, transparent and auditable.
