Town Hall, Arts & Architecture and Free Press Philanthropy
By Terrance Thornton | Digital Free Press
Welcome to Free Press Paradise Valley at the Arizona Digital Free Press, an unbiased news organization focused on striving to report the truth no matter the outcome.
I started this news organization because I believe in truth, justice and the American way. There is no greater ambition in my estimation than to use the tenets of local journalism emboldened by the First Amendment to serve the public well.
Beginning Thursday, Sept. 1, I hope to serve the Town of Paradise Valley through a dedicated approach to seeking the most accurate truth with dignity and respect for all points of view.
The vision of this news enterprise is simple: To forge a digital-only, sustainable news organization focused on expert reporting, in this case at Free Press Paradise Valley, Town Hall, Arts & Architecture and Free Press Philanthropy.
For our Town of Paradise Valley digital reporting there will be three primary focuses:
- Expert Town Hall reporting;
- Arts & Architecture; and
- Free Press Philanthropy
The focus of this news organization is journalism. At the Digital Free Press we will not be advocates for issues, a purveyor of right or wrong, but rather a company focused on seeking the most accurate truth no matter what.
The Arizona Digital Free Press reports the local news you need to know in the Town of Paradise Valley.
Town of Paradise Valley reporting:
The Mission Statement: A digital free press bound by three guiding principles, which are equitable access to information, honesty in all dealings internal and external, and the regular generation of local journalism that matters. The Arizona Digital Free Press has very humble beginnings but with hard work, determination and a no-quit attitude anything can be accomplished in the United States of America.
The Business Model: A free digital-only content platform focused on particular access to local journalism at City Hall and expert reporting and commentary regarding all things business. Providing a dual mission to highbrow City Hall and news coverage, a place for genuine, data-driven business and real estate reporting you can trust, and finally, a repository of market data and analysis every consumer ought to know.
Arizona Digital Free Press Collective:
The Arizona Digital Free Press Collective is a true innovation in the business of digital news media. Instead of taking 100% of proceeds, the Digital Free Press program provides a profit-share plan based on real time analytics. Similar to an artist allowing his or her music to be played on a platform, the amount of activity garnered will translate into more revenue for the artist but in our case, the journalist.
