Journalism is under attack
ENEMY is a new publication dedicated to reporting on abuses of power in news deserts and underrepresented communities across the United States. As alternative facts spread and the truth is called fake news; as local accountability reporting disappears; as news organizations prioritize quantity over quality and access over integrity, we know we need something better.
No clickbait, no hyperbole, no partisan yelling. Instead, we’re focused on what’s important: independent, principled, public service journalism.

We’re building a home for journalism that matters, that has an impact, and that holds power to account—journalism that lives up to the urgency of our time.
Collection of Essays
We designed ENEMY to counteract the maelstrom of today’s news. No constantly updating feeds, no urgent cable news graphics, no nonsense. Sit with a story, actually think about it, and share a book with a friend. (Yes, you can share things in real life, too!)
The written work we’ve mocked up here is by Jennifer Gonnerman; Walt Bogdanich and Glenn Silber; and Bernice Yeung. We’ve chosen these stories because they’re models of the type of journalism we plan to publish.
Inside & Out
We want the photography to feel like a personal photo exhibit arriving at your doorstep. No photos smudged by newsprint. No photos popping up in some terrible new window. Just beautiful, powerful photography at your fingertips.
Here, we’ve featured work by David Butow, Jessica Pons, and Robert Gumpert as examples of the type of work we’d commission.
