Frequently Asked Questions

Who are we? 

ScheerPost is an independent, daily news organization founded in March 2020 by award-winning veteran journalists Robert Scheer and Narda Zacchino, publisher and editor-in-chief of ScheerPost, respectively.

What is Our Mission?

ScheerPost is dedicated to telling the stories from a progressive point of view, focusing on four pillars that define our journalism:

  • A commitment to peace and the true costs of war.
  • A commitment to economic, social, racial and gender equality.
  • A commitment to climate change awareness exposing the harm enabled as a result of profit-obsessed capitalism.
  • A commitment to unbiased reporting that holds those in power accountable for their corruption, hypocrisy and/or harm.

Our journalism is vital to providing fact-based understanding of what is going on in our world today. ScheerPost stays up to date on crucial issues of our time, from covering the U.S.’s rampant defense spending in Ukraine, to worker’s strikes and unionization efforts across the country, to wrongful imprisonment and criminal justice reform, and the destruction of the environment by international corporations.

We covered the extradition of Julian Assange and protests across the globe to free him, along with publishers of the world’s largest newspapers including the New York Times, asking the U.S. to drop all charges against him. We had a foreign correspondent travel to Saudi Arabia to cover Joe Biden’s arrival in Jeddah. We have covered the U.S.’s inhumane and frequent use of capital punishment. ScheerPost is committed to raising the voices of those most marginalized in our society and amplifying issues suppressed by some of the most powerful people and organizations in the world.

Now in its fourth year of operation, ScheerPost’s impact is growing. From winning several journalism awards to bringing renowned guests on our podcast, to challenging multiple generations of readers and political activists with different perspectives, ScheerPost has developed a strong internet presence, with more than 9.8 million site visits by our readers. 

ScheerPost is primarily sustained from donations, from which the editor-in-chief and publisher receive no compensation.

How does your comment system work?

At a time where free speech is coming under attack, ScheerPost encourages discussion of topics and ideas which might be censored elsewhere. We acknowledge that each reader comes to the site with a diverse perspective and set of life experiences, and we encourage you all to contribute to or challenge the discourse presented on the site.

At the end of each article is a comment section where readers can write comments to express their ideas or reactions to an article or the issue it presents. Readers can also reply to one another’s comments to contribute or challenge ideas presented. We also allow upvotes of comments which readers deem most helpful, and conversely, downvote comments that don’t add much to the conversation. To leave a comment, readers must login to their WordPress account or leave their name and email address below the comment box. Users are allowed to edit their comments following the original post by navigating to the settings button at the bottom right corner. When entering a name, make sure it is longer than three characters.

Every comment will go through moderation to be approved by one of our editors. As a pro-free speech independent news organization, we do not censor comments. We will never delete a comment because of any conflicting beliefs or ideas. However, we do not approve spam, baseless self promotion, and hate / threats directed at the author or another commenter. Users who make threats will be flagged and blocked.

Each Monday, a “Comment of the Week” is chosen to be featured in our weekly newsletter. By leaving a comment, you are consenting to potentially having your comment and username included in our newsletter.
