The political process in America depends heavily on an informed and active body politic. Sound decisions cannot be made without access to the right information. At AMS, we fight against fake news to ensure that our readers have a chance to see the news that matters – news that impacts their lives directly.
AMS also is in a unique position within the media landscape – to ensure that people who care about specific issues can receive offers, news, information, and calls to action on the topics they care about the most. We see our role as one of both providing information, and providing the means and access to act on that information.
Media in America is laden with bias. Bias from people, and now algorithmic bias. We circumvent this biased system by sending news that our editors have vetted directly to our readers’ inboxes. We also partner with brands and content producers that have a solid track record for meaningful and insightful reportage.
