What is DRSC Media?
DRSC Media was created by DRSC Publishers at the end of 2017.
At DRSC Media, we try to do journalism in a different way, trying as often as possible to give complete articles, attempting to keep bias outside of them. It is no secret that we often fail at this, as it can be seen in our many political articles attacking the US or strongly defending the European Union, to the point of being accused of being financed by EU Institutions (we wish!).
Regardless, contrary to other more and more questionable media outlets, looking more like full-pledged tabloids or constantly pushing an agenda, we avoid covering paparazzi-like events, and avoid clickbait titles, losing on hundreds and thousands of views & revenue, which, inevitably, give less visibility to big, important articles we’ve published.
Currently, we do not have a clear publishing schedule. We try to publish as regularly as possible, covering as many different subjects as possible in an accurate manner.
Who owns DRSC Media?
DRSC Media is 100% privately owned by DRSC Publishers Ltd. You can find our company information here.
Who finances DRSC Media?
We have (already) been accused in the past of being state-funded. We wish we were*, but, sadly, we are not. DRSC Media is 100% privately funded by DRSC Publishers. DRSC Publishers is also a private company, and does not receive any kind of public funding.
We haven’t, and will never, accept(ed) money from any government or institution.
So far, according to those accusing us, we are funded by:
- The European Commission
- The European Parliament
- The European Union
- Cs (Ciudadanos), a Spanish political party
We are still waiting for their cheques.
Currently, most of the operating costs are covered by DRSC Publishers. Advertisements on our site contribute to the funding, although to a negligible amount.
*Since its launch at the end of 2017, DRSC Media has been losing money. We eventually managed to be profitable for 2 months, before going back to bleeding money.
How many people work for DRSC Media?
Originally, the team had 3 people involved in the writing, correction, proofreading and publication of our articles. The team shrank to 2 between January 2018 and June 2019, before adding a new member in July 2019. The team is from different countries, speaks different languages and therefore views things differently, allowing us to give an accurate representation of the situation. All the staff involved in DRSC Media also work on other projects for DRSC Publishers.
Where is DRSC Media located?
Until June 2019, DRSC Media was fully located in the heart of Europe, in Brussels. Since then, we’ve expanded the team, re-opening our office in Alicante, Spain.
