Leasing News Mission
One of our main goals is to be a crusader of ideas; a provocateur of thought, presenting all sides following internet netiquette.
We will continue as an ombudsman to help “arbitrate, negotiate,” “resolve” complaints, answer specific questions that readers may have, help provide solutions, sources, contacts, tools, resources, and make available the truth of what is really happening in the leasing industry.
It is our mission to not represent one viewpoint, but to give all sides available, and to find the truth behind a “spin” in a press release. To be first with the news and to follow-up until full conclusion.
We do not represent a “membership” or group who's interest is primarily promoting their membership and activities.
We are independent in every spirit of the word. We have written about advertisers, friends, leasing associations, and seek to represent all sides equally. We have placed “advertisers” in our complaint bulletin board, informing them that they may no longer advertise here.
Opinions and viewpoints in an article are allowed when the article is signed by the writer, as is the policy of Associated Press.
If a writer has a potential conflict of interest, a disclaimer will be included in any article.
All press releases, written by others will be so indicated with ##### surrounding.
We only will have an edition when there is “sufficient equipment leasing news.”
We will continue to help those seeking employment or who want to seek a better position. Originally our “help wanted” ads were free, but too many were taking advantage in seeking “commissioned salesmen,” so now this has become a “paid” privilege. Our other classified ad, such as “job wanted,” “outsourcing,” and “attorney” ads will remain free.
The Leasing News Advisory Board is chosen by the publisher.They are not financially compensated. They participate in the overall direction of our electronic newspaper. As with a printed newspaper, it is the editor's sole discretion as to what is “printed” and not “printed;” specifically the advisory board is not consulted for editorial content.
It is not an editorial board.
While we are in a different century, different time, and do not have the
circulation of “The World,” Leasing News will strive to follow “The World's” editorial policy as expressed by its publisher Joseph Pulitzer.

The Mission of “The World” newspaper
“An institution which should always fight for progress and reform; never tolerate injustice or corruption; always fight demagogues of all parties; never belong to any party; always oppose privileged classes and public plunder; never lack sympathy with the poor; always remain devoted to the public welfare; never be satisfied with merely printing the news; always be drastically independent; never be afraid to attack wrong, whether by predatory plutocracy or predatory poverty.”
October 30, 1911 Frank J. Cobb, editor, “The World.” His statement is a quote from the publisher Joseph Pulitzer's retirement speech on April 10, 1907.
