LaCorte News

Coming Soon

What the #[email protected]&%*! is happening to journalism?
In the last few years, “yellow journalism” has returned. The media has always had its biases and problems, but never before have we witnessed such a quick loss of credibility and trust. Too often, reporters have become activists and reasonable opinion has been replaced by extremism, trading credibility for online clicks. It’s hurting not just the media, but America as well.

First, who’s Ken LaCorte?

“For the past 18 years, I was a senior executive at Fox News. I started as the Bureau Chief for the western states where I ran the news operations west of the Rocky Mountains.
 
I then took over FoxNews.com, where I was responsible for all of the content you saw for the past 10 years. I helped spur explosive growth, increasing page views 400% to 1.2 billion per month. It grew into one of the world’s largest news sites, bringing in over $100 million per year with huge profit margins.
 
Along the way, I tackled some critical assignments, such as fighting to stop one of our reporters from being jailed for protecting her sources, and traveling to Gaza to spearhead the return of two kidnapped Fox journalists.
 
Even before I became a journalist, I understood the power of the internet. In 1997, I defied California officials by publishing the “Megan’s Law” list of high-risk sex offenders.
 
Since then, the state has reversed course and now makes that information public online.
 
Now, I’m assembling a team of journalists and experts who not only see the troubled state of news, but have a plan to help fix it.”
