A New Approach to the News – www.ourworldtoday.com.au
From About Us – After years of research, discussions and relevant experience in life and news, we have created a news source that veers away from current trends of negativity and sensationalism, and will focus on presenting inspiring, in-depth and positive news stories. By being not for profit, we illustrate that the media does not have to be about making money, and with that comes a sense of freedom in journalism, the ability to tell the stories you care for, the truth, unrestricted ideals and a chance for change. ourworldtoday.com.au will have mainstream appeal, but present a unique array of positive and challenging in-depth stories.
