About the NewBostonPost
The NewBostonPost is an online news source founded in 2015 by Tina McCormick, a European immigrant with a PhD in cultural history, and a group of Boston-based entrepreneurs. NBP provides curated and aggregated content, original reporting, and insightful commentary. Although strictly non-partisan, the NewBostonPost aims to provide a home for conservative, libertarian, classical liberal, and moderate voices in an effort to promote constructive and civil debate on issues of concern to New Englanders and all Americans.
A LETTER FROM NBP FOUNDER TINA MCCORMICK
The founders of the NewBostonPost feel strongly that the work of journalists is essential to the survival of democratic institutions. At the same time, we recognize that rarely is news presented without political perspective. A journalistic team makes many editorial choices each day, including what stories to cover, how to cover them, what priority to assign them, and which headlines should describe them. Try as editors might to eliminate bias, what ultimately emerges is a unique final product with a particular viewpoint.
At NewBostonPost, we believe that a robust, but transparent, media is the key to facilitating constructive debate. We will always be fair, but we will not pretend that we lack a perspective. This is it: We believe in the principles of ordered liberty, economic freedom, equal opportunity, and human dignity; we believe that the United States of America represents the world’s best reflection of these ideals and that, as a result, provides a beacon of hope to the world.
Guided by this world view, the NewBostonPost aims to highlight stories of patriotism, liberty, family, and faith — and of Americans drawing together in support of the common good. We pledge to further the American experiment by highlighting stories that inspire and cultivate a sense of unity and the American spirit of hope. Ultimately, our stories will serve the larger truth of human dignity, which, we believe, is the foundation of a just society. Our goal to provide creative and thought-provoking content for readers who believe that ideas are more important than ideology and that principles are more important than party affiliation.
Given our location, the NewBostonPost seeks to produce content with a distinctly regional flavor. We will cover local stories of national importance that you might not find elsewhere; and we will highlight national issues that are relevant to us here in New England.
We hope to attract readers who are tired of the local mainstream media’s disingenuous claim to be neutral, as well as readers who welcome constructive debate and wish to re-discover the principles that lay at the root of this country’s founding. And we hope to remind our readers that we are, by virtue of our citizenship, common history, and unique experience with freedom, more united than divided.
