From a broader standpoint, Blasting News is based on the principles of the sharing economy: a fully independent technological institution connecting writers, content and audience in a professional magazine powered by hundreds of thousands of people called Blasters. Blasting News’ mission is to establish the leading global independent news magazine fueled and curated by the crowd. We operate without any central newsroom or Editor-in-Chief, thanks to an extensive use of technology, therefore contributing to forming truly independent public opinion, giving everybody the opportunity to post high-quality, original news in a professional magazine.
