What Is The Story Rundown?

>>The STORY RUNDOWN is an experiment in ethical news aggregation. What does that mean? Well, news sources increasingly rely on internet traffic, on clicks and length of visit data to sell advertising. And that is how they fund their news gathering, investigative journalism and dwindling staffs. By pointing you toward their websites, the STORY RUNDOWN makes sure they get the clicks. The NEWSVANDAL simply does the work of aggregating the day’s news and giving you a roadmap. Each Monday-Friday morning this list is sent out. It not only compiles a variety of stories from a panoply of sources, but the headlines are stacked in a logical order so that they themselves tell a bigger story–a “meta-story” of the daily news cycle. Check out an example below (for Dec. 6, 2012). If you’d like to receive the STORY RUNDOWN in your inbox, send an email to info@newsvandal.com.
