🏆 And the winner is…
Over 600 people voted on which "Too Bad to be True" investigation we should undertake.
The winner, with 43 percent of the votes, was the sixth mass extinction.
Second was the environmental impact of aviation, 36 percent, and third was screen time for children with 21 percent.
🔎 Donate and help us do the investigation
The investigation will be carried out by one of Sweden's leading journalists, Anders Bolling. He has 20+ years of experience as a journalist and editor at Sweden’s largest daily newspaper.
It will take about two weeks and cost at least $2000.
Without your support we cannot do it.
Our goal is for this article to have an impact in other media as well.
Maybe we can inspire them to carry out similar investigations?
Then we’’ have better balanced media and more people can feel hope for the future.
Pst! If this is successful, we will do the aviation investigation in the same way.
