Hello!

Thanks so much for visiting the Patreon page of Forensic News. We aim to create a new era of journalism by producing stories that include hard evidence that may pass the threshold as evidence admissible in court. Our focus is on national security and political/legal matters, though we are entirely open to investigating issues of racial, social, financial injustice. 

We are a team of investigators and researchers at heart. From the launch, millennials Scott Stedman, Adrienne Cobb, Rawand Safi, and Jess Coleman will produce original investigatory pieces that hold truth to power in politics, business, and elsewhere. Eric Levai will be behind the mic, hosting a weekly podcast to keep you caught up on the news. Levai will aim to have a high-profile interview each week with a respected voice in the field of national security, intelligence, politics, etc. 

We are also absolutely thrilled that other big-name journalists and academics have shown interest in the project, and will likely be announced as part of the team soon!

We believe that the current model of paying to read paywalled news content is inherently flawed. Rather, we plan on offering incentives and rewards for those who contribute to our project. You will never have to pay to read our content, but if you appreciate our work and decide to support us financially, you will get a host of perks. We believe in this business model. It's up to you all to make it viable.

If you can't support financially, we understand, and your readership is very valuable to us.
