Thanks for joining Swordpress!
Welcome to a concise, impartial, and comprehensive news source that helps inform your opinion—without telling you how to think.
Four years ago we were at our day jobs, frustrated by a news industry that served relentless clickbait, disguised opinion as fact, and obsessed over a 24/7 outrage cycle. So we launched Swordpress. Since then, we’ve grown from 78 friends and family to a community of more than 2.22 +million unique readers till date according to Amazon’s Alexa, and remain one of the largest independently-owned newsletters around.
If you’re ready to dive in, check out our most recent cutting edge pressing posts here. And if you like what you see, please share Swordpress with friends and family.

We also just sent you a welcome email if you registered —sometimes email clients send the first email to your spam, promotions, or junk folder tab. If you don’t see us in your inbox, check those folders—and drag and drop the welcome email into your inbox. Please go look now!
Enjoy, and remember you can always reply to any email we send to let us know how we can make Swordpress more impactful to you. Thanks for joining, see you soon!
Our company and values.
How It All Started
We came from different backgrounds. Abi was a data scientist working in a Bank and Frank was a venture capitalist. But we faced the same challenge: we had limited time each morning to catch up on the most important news and information of the day and felt overwhelmed by a barrage of filler content, opinion disguised as fact, and relentless clickbait.
We felt stuck in a broken media landscape. On one side, we saw large news media outlets we respected but who reported the world through their own lens; on the other, hundreds of niche, deep-dive sources we never had time to read through. If only there was an all-in-one source where we could efficiently digest the most important news and information of the day without drowning in biased content, talking heads, and entertainment masquerading as fact.
So with no media experience – but a vision for how the news could be made better – we left our careers to build Swordpress.
Instead of cleverly crafted messaging and media narratives, Swordpress provides an impartial view of what’s happening in the world so our readers can form their own conclusions. Scouring hundreds of sources each day, Swordpress delivers news with breadth plus depth, thoughtfully curated by experts, in a single morning briefing. We believe news is not about proving one side is right – it should inspire objective conversation that helps you navigate the world around you. While it may sound lofty, our goal is to empower readers so they can lead better, well-informed, more productive lives.
What began as an email among 78 friends is now enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of readers each day. Swordpress is an independent, employee-owned company, not affiliated with any larger media outlet.

How Swordpress operates
We evaluate a publication against our Editorial Standards, which require a track record of publishing quality, credible journalism.
Once accepted, we check their website, day and night, for new stories.
Our technology evaluates every article against editorially-driven criteria, and adds it to the relevant feeds.
We reassess feeds and publications regularly to keep standards high, and work with publishers where necessary to help achieve this.
Founded by journalists and developers to democratise the news media, now in its 15th year.
A news organisation using technology to support and promote credible, independent and public interest journalism, and in turn, news media plurality

Still independently owned and founder-led today
Ad funded – but actively exploring how, together with news organisations, we can move towards a future where public interest news and journalism is funded sustainably by the people it serves

A healthy society needs a healthy news diet
News is at the heart of what we do. We’re driven by the need to help make news serve people better, because a healthy society needs a healthy news diet.
Swordpress exists to facilitate this, by publishing headlines linking to breaking and curated news from a diverse range of credible, independent and public interest news sources.
On the platform, people can discover new publications, weigh up differing presentations of the facts and viewpoints, and challenge their preconceptions, all as they make up their own minds.
We believe this helps make society better, but huge challenges remain. We must urgently move towards a future where public interest news and journalism is effectively funded by — and distributed for — the people it serves.
