Careful readers of TNS's In Other News segment will have noticed a new pair of initials adorning some of the bulletins we've published in the last couple days: GV. I'm very pleased to announce that a new contributor, Gabriel Voiles, has joined our staff as a part-time writer responsible for gathering and writing ION bulletins weekday mornings.
The popular In Other News segment of our daily publishing has long been a strain on our current staff of six full timers. While we all keep up with the news on a regular basis, it takes several hours a day to find the best sources and the broadest range of important stories. One terrific result of our recent membership drive is that we secured funding to bring Gabriel on board -- something we've had in the plans for several months but were not sure we could afford as we watched our revenues dwindle.
Gabriel is an avid newsreader, a founding member of theExperiment collective, and the keen critic behind the "Media Views" column over at the Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting website. We've long admired his work at FAIR, and are very pleased to finally be working with him directly.
