VEXNEWS is first with the worst.
We break the news that shakes the nation.
We’re VEX because vex means to annoy people and that’s precisely what we’ll be doing when we’re doing our job. Speaking truth to power. Afflicting the comfortable. Comforting the afflicted.
Our famed VEXNEWS Investigations Unit has broken so many stories, revealed political secrets, brought down ministers, rifled through dusty archives and generally being willing to go where others won’t in search of the truth.
This is what journalism should be. Indeed for most of our history it has been except for its modern odious iteration when it pretended to be something it wasn’t: infallible, uninfluenced by cultural bias, pure and omniscient. It’s never been any of those things.
While we’re edgy, we’ve never once been sued in defamation. And that’s because we get it right. We’re not perfect but we’re always trying perfect our craft: telling the big stories, first and the worst.
With stuffy, staid old newsrooms being slashed and burned across the world, we understand the dimension of our responsibility. We are nothing less than the future of news. Not on our own, of course. Our voice should be just one proud part of the beautiful bitter-sweet cacophony. But we will be heard.
