Free Daily News Report Subscription For Students

Published: February 3rd, 2016

Hi Journalism Majors,

I’m writing on behalf of a new organization called The Murrow Daily Report (named for Edward R. Murrow). We run a daily newsletter that sends out 1-3 evidence-based news articles per day in a single email to a mailing list of UF students. Our aim is to deliver the news responsibly: no emotional manipulation, no political agenda, no fumbling B.S. to break a story first.

Our contributors are from varied political ideologies and we screen pieces according to the following criteria (stolen from The Newsroom):

1) Is this information we need in the voting booth?

2) Is this the best possible form of the argument?

3) Is this in historical context?

4) Are there really two sides to this story?

Email MurrowDaily@gmail.com if interested in being added to the list (you can always shoot us an email at any time to unsubscribe if you decide you’re not diggin’ it).

Thanks!
