Ethical Media

News That Empowers

What is The Knife?

We are a subscription-based service that brings you the news without the spin - really. We source facts from over 50 different news outlets, providing a comprehensive overview of what's happening in the world, and write critical analyses that expose the ways media outlets contaminate your news with spin, slant and invalid logic. In other words, we sort through the BS, so you don't have to. And no, we're not afraid to get our hands dirty.

How does it work?

Using a proprietary system of analysis, we distill the news to the raw data, rate outlets on their use of distortion mechanisms, and summarize our findings. We use infographics, thought-provoking questions and in-depth explorations to illuminate how the media affects our perception of reality and society as a whole. Do you know what's in your news?

News that empowers.

As a Knife subscriber, you will be better informed, improve your critical thinking skills, and have more time to spend on the important things – like imagining a world where objective, ethical news is the norm.

Our Process

What the world needs is scientific media.

Without clear and consistent standards, media outlets (which are often funded by advertisers or corporations) have free reign to report whatever they want however they want, deeply affecting society's beliefs and values. Our standards introduce accountability in journalism, consciousness to readers, and precision and honor to the recording of world history.

  • Honor
  • Responsibility
  • Integrity
  • Humanity
  • Truth

The Knife will change how you access and process information and news in the digital age.
