THE LATEST: Who We Are, What We Believe

All Topics. All Sides. One Place.

The one thing people tell us they really like about THE LATEST is that we are politically neutral.

You can see the same story as presented by Huffington Post, Fox News, New York Times, BBC and Al Jazeera – side by side.

We do the same with our commentators.  All points of view are welcome at THE LATEST, provided they are offered in a spirit of mutual respect. 

TheLatest.com is not a place to spew hate, use four-letter words or spread false or malicious propaganda. In these hyper-partisan times, we want to provide a fresh alternative.

But we hear one criticism about TheLatest.com fairly often: People think our policy of political neutrality gets lost in the shuffle.  This is because, in addition to politics, our site covers business, entertainment, sports, lifestyle and more – anything can be “the latest.” 

Our "show all sides" philosophy doesn’t “leap out” at people because there is too much going on at THE LATEST, we're told. 

So soon we will soon launch a second site, OUR NATIONAL CONVERSATION (OurNationalConversation.org) devoted 100% to a nonpartisan review of politics.  

OurNationalConversation.org will offer news and commentary from a wide range of sources – from left to right and everything in between. 

All points of view (respectfully stated and based on real facts), will be welcome.  It's time America started talking again.

In addition to news and opinion, we will add another feature: We want to create a location on the site where people can place actual policy proposals that will, if adopted, make our country better. Our readers and writers are very smart.  Many have true subject expertise.  Others just have amazing common sense. We will tap into all that.

These policy proposals will take into account the best of liberal, moderate and conservative thinking. We will keep these proposals short, simple, practical and to the point.  We have a small army of student interns from all across America working on this. We hope to go live in the fall of 2022.

This 70-second video will give you a feel for OUR NATIONAL CONVERSATION (we call ourselves ONC for short): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HE_kqRKqJRc&feature=youtu.be

I see no reason why we can’t “fix” – on paper, anyway – immigration, healthcare, budget deficits and all the other issues that vex our nation.

As the bumper sticker says, “If the people lead, the politicians will follow.”

If you want to discuss any of this, please get in touch by sending me an email: [email protected] Please tell me who you are, how you’d like to get involved.  If you're not sure, we have plenty of projects in need of help.  Hope to hear from you.
