Borrowing tools and concepts from the influential online encyclopedia, Wikitribune will be free and supported by readers, not ads. It will feature professional journalists and community members, working side by side, to produce fact-checked journalism that's readily supported by evidence and sources. And anyone can flag mistakes or submit revisions for review.
Watch Wales outline the vision for Wikitribune in the Kirby Ferguson-made video above. Then, consider making a financial contribution to the new news platform here. They're now raising money to get operations started and hire 10 journalists.
