A brighter future

As Orato World Media marks its return to the digital news sphere, we're wary of the traps and pitfalls that lie ahead.

It’s time that we say goodbye to 2020. For many of us, the new year marks a fresh start—a chance to leave at least a portion of life’s challenges in 2020.

I don’t need to tell you that this year was full of headlines. There are too many big news breakers to list in a single paragraph. Beyond the headlines, this year changed how we consume the news and how newsmakers distribute information.

Misinformation spreads like wildfire on social media; social giants face antitrust lawsuits. Newspapers shutter their doors as advertising revenue tanks. The need for reliable news is greater now than ever before.

The world changed since our initial launch more than 20 years ago. But the time is right for us to make our return. We strive to renew trust in digital media by providing verified first-person stories.

So, as the clock strikes midnight, let’s take a moment not to reflect on the horrors of the past year but to look towards a brighter, more informed future.
