Seeking writers for the NOQ Report

The answer to the first question: This is not a paid position. Until we’re able to generate revenue through the site or acquire the support of sustainable sponsors, we’re in no position to pay people.

To those who believe in conservatism, federalism, limited government, and freedoms, we’re a great venue through which you may have your voice heard. As mainstream media continues to reveal their liberal leanings, it’s important for sites like NOQ Report to give people an alternative to the progressive talking points.

Benefits of writing for NOQ Report:

  1. Exposure as real news: Unlike most right-leaning publications, our stories are recognized by Google News and other news aggregators. This allows our stories to sit side-by-side with mainstream media and liberal news sites to offer a counterbalance to what the average media consumer in America is exposed to on a daily basis.
  2. Editorial clarity: We do not censor our writers unless they espouse the type of hatred that a free-thinking society deems unacceptable. That means we don’t post articles from white supremacists, Antifa, or any of the alt-right or alt-left forces trying to divide society. If your writing is controversial with a righteous purpose, we’re all in favor of that. If your writing is intended to cause a stir for the sake of causing a stir, we’ll pass.
  3. Full bylines and profiles: We don’t use ghost writers. We have an intern who posts quick pieces under the name “NOQ Staff” but that’s just for the one- or two-sentence stories that point to other media types like videos. Otherwise, it’s your name (or pen name, if you prefer) that gets posted with full credit given.
  4. The lottery ticket: Who knows? If ever we get that big sponsor who loves the idea of promoting independent voices with right-leaning perspectives, we may someday be able to actually pay our writers. No promises, but if it ever happens we’ll be ecstatic about sending out the checks.

Important note: We are not a Republican shill. That’s not to say we don’t post pro-GOP articles, but our team takes pride in expressing things as we see them. If a Republican does well, we’ll give them credit. If they do poorly, we’ll call them out. We don’t hide stories just because they’re critical of a Republican. If anything, exposing the moderates and liberals in the party makes our approval of others in the GOP more credible.

Charlie Kirk points to the danger that’s present and the media that’s absent

Charlie Kirk points to the danger that's present and the media that's absent

Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk is no stranger to attacking the media for the leftist propaganda and reporting hypocrisy. He’s also built a reputation of defending conservatives on campus where they are arguably the most targeted for their beliefs.

These two areas of expertise collided in one poignant quote following an incident in which a conservative was attacked on the Berkeley campus for being a conservative, the whole Jussie Smollett incident, and the conspicuous absence of mainstream media coverage of both.

Seriously, where is the media?

This is why it’s so important for independent conservative news outlets like NOQ Report to grow and flourish. We are 100% crowdfunded and we desperately need the support.

Lara Logan’s message about the media must not go unheard

Lara Logans message about the media must not go unheard

It’s unfortunate that most Americans still have no idea who Lara Logan is. She is brave. She is usually accurate. She isn’t impressed by the leftist rhetoric in the journalistic echo chamber in which she’s operated most of her adult life. All three of these things makes her an enigma in the world of mainstream media.

Her message yesterday during the Mike Drop Podcast was one the world needs to hear. Whether you want to listen to three and a half hours of curse-laden podcasting or if you just want to know the gist is up to you, but don’t dismiss the message outright. This is too important.

What Logan said is what a good number of conservative Americans have known for a long time: mainstream media leans very much to the left. They’ve been left-leaning for at least three decades, but today’s variation of “objective truth” is far from objective and rarely the truth. As Logan noted, the newsrooms of America’s journalistic outlets are not made up of the unbiased truth-tellers they’d like us to believe they are. Instead, they’re made up of political activists with the vast majority of them (85% according to Logan) leaning to the left.

As some are aware, their lean has turned into a full-blown lurch to the left during the Trump era.

What does this mean for journalism? Does it mean we need more unbiased reporting? This is a question we’ve asked many times at NOQ Report. Since the vast majority of our writers are conservatives, it would make sense to continue to be a right-leaning publication. But some have suggested that America needs more unbiased reporting, and we’re definitely capable of doing that. But here’s the thing. If we and others go down the unbiased road while most of mainstream media remains bound to the left, are we really making a difference? The answer that we invariably come to is, “No.”

The only way to truly fight the bias is to maintain a sense of honesty about our perspectives. That means we are biased to both the conservative philosophy and the truth itself. Unlike leftist media, intellectually honest conservative media has the advantage of being both truthful and righteous simultaneously. This is why we can call out President Trump or the Republican Party when it’s appropriate. We are beholden to an ideology, not a political party, and therefore we do not have to hide the truth just because it isn’t convenient come election time.

Support independent conservative journalism.

As I’ve done many times in the past, I have no problem with calling out anyone in any party when their actions are in opposition to the limited-government, federalism-minded, conservatively balanced philosophies we espouse. When President Trump had acting AG Matthew Whitaker sign the bump stock ban, we weren’t sitting back running cover for the President. We called out him, his administration, and every politician that supported this obtuse affront on the 2nd Amendment.

Lara Logan may or may not be calling out the media for their bias out of a sense or duty. There’s no way to know her heart. But her words were truthful and there seems to be nothing for her to gain from them. This message is one that deserves attention.

Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann sues WaPo for a quarter of a billion dollars

Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann sues WaPo for a quarter of a billion dollars

The “MAGA Kids” may end up getting their day in court after all. Since Covington Catholic School students were falsely accused by many in mainstream media of attacking a Native American activist at the March for Life rally in Washington DC, many have speculated they would be preparing a lawsuit. The family of Nick Sandmann, who was at the center of the controversy, retained an attorney last month.

Now, it seems the attorneys have been working overtime.

My Take

This is going to open up another round of attacks against Sandmann and the “MAGA Kids” because of the size of the lawsuit and the targets. Going after the media is always hard (as it should be) and demonstrating harm to the tune of a quarter billion dollars is going to be even harder. Nevertheless, this was the next natural step after the torment they went through following the incident.

Before anyone calls him weak for using the broken system to try to score a paycheck, we must remember these events are going to harm him well into his adult life. Even today, after all of the allegations against him have been thoroughly debunked, he’s still regarded negatively by many leftists simply because he had the nerve to wear a MAGA hat.

Is his suffering worth $250 million? That’s for others to decide. But the damage the media and leftist politicians did to these kids is definitely worth something. Hopefully, they’ll be able to rebuild their lives with whatever they’re awarded.
