Learn how we're reclaiming international news
Reclaiming international news
Once the envy of the world, U.S. news organizations have closed almost all their foreign bureaus over the last few decades. The result is that Americans know less about the world than previous generations – at just the moment when the world is most connected. Using its unique partnership model, REM is turning the lights back on, bringing vision and depth to lost international coverage.
At REM, we are committed to the most comprehensive, balanced reporting possible. REM’s unique method means stories have two reporters: one from the United States, the other from the country where the story happens. These reporters, with the mentoring support of REM, work together in equal partnership to research and report on the same stories – creating the most balanced, comprehensive view possible.
Support & Mentorship
REM is building the next generation of reporters by supporting early-career (35 and under) and student journalists. These young freelancers, usually with nothing but their wits and youthful endurance, uncover important stories around the world without the expense accounts, “fixers," and even health insurance that disappeared when foreign bureaus were closed. REM stands in the gap to do everything possible to mentor, support, and train these journalists – and to get their work published in the largest media outlets in the world.
