Newswise Special Wire: Weekly Politics News and Experts from Newswise

Our Weekly Round-Up of U.S. Politics News and Experts.

U.S. Politics News Source

This week’s Newswise Politics Wire includes experts available to comment on last Saturday’s protest and the violence that transpired in Charlottesville, Virginia. Because of our commitment to objectivity and journalistic principles, we will not editorialize or inject personal biases onto these events and the response to them currently being covered by the media. However, we are acutely aware of the significance of these events because they happened in our own community, less than a mile from our offices. Newswise moved from Washington D.C. to Charlottesville more than a decade ago to enjoy the many wonderful things this city has to offer. While our staff, family, friends, and neighbors reckon with what this moment means to us on a personal level, Newswise remains committed to the idea that the solution to many of the world’s problems lies in education, research, and good journalism.

"Our liberty cannot be guarded but by the freedom of the press.”

-Thomas Jefferson
