NewsBeat Social “NBS” plans to fill a deficiency in the global market for a modern, video-first, facts only news service. Currently the Company gathers, composes and distributes about 60 video news reports a day at a cost less than $100 per/report.
NewsBeat Social, Inc. (“NBS”) is a global news agency that generates fact-based reports from newsworthy events around the world and plans to license its continuously updated library to news publishers, news aggregators and web portals worldwide. Recent fake news scandals have created an unprecedented opportunity. NBS covers the four facts or basic elements of any newsworthy event: who, what, when and where. Each news event is transformed into a self-contained news report available in three formats: Anchored Video, Text and an Audio File all at a cost to NBS of under $100 per report. Our news reports do not contain any analysis or opinion, nor do they contain native or sponsored content and content marketing masquerading as news or the latest scandal, fake news.
NBS plans to expand the number of field backpack reporters we have to major national capital regions around the world, and extend our workflow further to execute what we like to call the Uberization model for journalists. In this model, journalists can train up and become a part of our news-gathering and a proprietary last mile fact checking system. When our assignment editors decide there’s a news report to verify, an alert will go out to the network to see if there’s capacity to pick up the report anywhere in the world. These “uberized” reporters may be close to the location that a news report is breaking and accept the assignment, capture raw video with their phones and confirm facts in our news format. These “uberized” journalists would be paired with a team at headquarters who will complete and distribute the news report to control quality and accuracy. These “uberized last mile fact checkers, armed with a smart phone will receive ratings on their news reporting, similar to a way an Uber driver gets reviewed by their customers.
