It happened. Fusion Media Group will relaunch Fusion.net on July 24 as SplinterNews.com. The re-branding follows Fusion.net’s struggle to find a voice when it first launched. Editor in Chief Dodai Stewart plans to continue pushing the truth and amplifying underrepresented voices.
“We firmly believe in telling the truth about outdated institutions and calling out injustices when we see them — and sometimes the truth hurts. Splinter will contextualize current events while remaining committed to amplifying underrepresented voices, shining a light on systemic inequality and skewering politicians when necessary. Readers can expect piercing reporting and commentary with a sharp point of view.”
With a new name, the site is already getting the social media mock treatment with individuals pointing out some things related to the new name that the folks at Fusion didn’t think about, or perhaps they didn’t care.
