Editor’s Notes – Wendy Thompson
November 6, 2010
As the editor-in-chief of the DC Spotlight newspaper, my staff and I strive to bring the best of politics, news, events and the most interesting newsmakers to you the readers both in the Washington, DC metro area and around the globe on the Internet. The DC Spotlight gives a different perspective on the news. We have taken the cynicism out of the news. Our reporters simply allow the residents, politicians, performing artists and newsmakers to tell their stories. The voices in the community build our stories. Unlike many news organizations, we rely heavily on extensive quotes and less on fluff and sound bites. We report the facts and then let the newsmakers speak. This is a new generation of news and the DC Spotlight is leading the way.
We want to be the voice of the community. Our goal is to showcase the best the metro area has to offer. This is reflected in every section and issue of our newspaper.
