Stay away from this place! They owe editors, freelancers, ex-employees (sorry I did not defend you guys when they fired you for no reason but I got a family and kids) and vendors lots of cash. They even brought back an IT guy who ripped them off. What a joke! They are running on fumes! I worked for over a month without pay and finally they just told me it was over. They make wild promises and the CEO is the most dishonest person I worked for with perhaps the exception of their attorney. I even kept my mouth shut about the Kochs giving thousands to UNS and this is what I get - not to mention the CEO and his comptroller. Oh, yeah, don't fall for the garbage press release they sent out asking for money from donors. The IRS should investigate this place and check the CEO's personal bank account for cash from pay to play schemes. Oh and the great sexy audio tape from one of the ex-employees should be public soon!
Racist company that treats people of color with zero respect, including pay and not hiring African-Americans for the investigative team. As a UNS staffer, I am sickened by our selfish and CEO who continues to shove down our throats right-wing b.s. stories that our content partners think is a joke. And now the cash is running out and I can't wait to leave this hell hole. Do not support or donate to this company. The cash just goes to Mortons Steak House and alcohol. What a waste!
AMI covers interesting topics that you typically don't see in other publications. The AMI Newswire offers multiple articles and fresh new content on a daily basis. The AMI Investigative stories blow the top off issues that are important to all of us -- security, corruption, etc. With many publications simply recycling AP content and looking all the same, AMI content is a welcome addition to the savvy news reader.
Wow, I thought this group was like Pro Publica.
Buzzfeed News did an expose here: https://www.buzzfeed.com/darrensands/group-plans-anti-clinton-news-in-black-press
Maybe this is why media outlets don't publish AMI stories.
The organization has lost substantial donor support after failing to deliver on its promises. It's personnel turnover rate has exceeded 100% in the past 18 months and 3 of its most prominate board members have resigned over management and ethics issues. It claims to place stories in major news outlets but no longer does so. For example, USA Today no longer accepts AMI material because of questions about AMI's integrity. AMI has begun using the GREAT NONPROFITS logo on it's homepage along with fake reviews to imply that it passes an ethics test, they did not and could not pass any such test.
This is one of the few fair media outlets left. They are excellent.
I first started reading AMI's Newswire about 4 months ago. It's a good source for news and interesting, in-depth reporting.
AMI has been a recent find for me. It's provided an educated and level-headed, yet alternative stance on public policy issues. It has been a great resource, especially when reading up on policy for work projects.
10/10 would recommend to a friend.
I first started reading AMI's Newswire about 6 months ago. I've found it to be a good source for daily news and interesting, in-depth reporting.
AMI has a truly global perspective and is filling a much needed gap in the world of journalism. As more and more newspapers fold, there is less investigative work like that which AMI does.
