NU Newsmedia…

‘NU’ stands for NEUTRAL and UNBIASED, which means we promote the WHOLE PERSPECTIVE, not a single party ideology. We believe in bringing you relevant and insightful stories that challenge and defy narratives and promote truth to situations. We cross the aisle and speak with everyone we need to, and get that truth to you!

NU Newsmedia: TRUTH through NEUTRAL and UNBIASED perspectives.

The Origin of NU Newsmedia…

NU Newsmedia was created in late-2023 by a misfit veteran turned journalist who grew tired of party politics and vitriol in Arizona. We wanted to bring people together in dialogue.

We wanted to bring a NEUTRAL and UNBIASED approach to the cultural and political landscape of Arizona. There is so much more that unites us, than divides us.

While the rest of the country has experienced a ‘news desert’, whereby smaller news outlets have been shuttered due to large media organization’s monopolization of the market, Arizona finds itself in a robust situation with some 90+ news services/outlets. We are but one more voice in a sea of information, but seek to empower our readers with TRUTH and PERSPECTIVE. We all lead such different lives, and those differences shouldn’t be feared.
