About Us

Should one offer news stories in 10-20 lines about emerging facts, cutting back on what may seem be long, perhaps inconsequential ramblings? While the debate is not new, and can be traced to the early 20th century, it has lately picked up with the rise of digital media.
Several top news organizations have instructed their journalists to cut the fat – and keep stories to around 300 words, even less. Why? Because, it is felt, readers can get “turned off” by longer stories, especially on mobile devices, an increasingly popular way for people to get news.
Speed and brevity have become more valuable than ever in the digital age, especially for stories which don’t need interpretation or background information. The is need felt more than ever before to tell a story in brief by banking on five Ws and H: Who, What, When, Where, Why and How.
Switching over to a mobile-friendly template design, CounterView seeks to follow this tenet, even as allowing a leeway for longer, interpretative and exclusive news stories for Counterview, with which it is associated.
Even as offering news in a nutshell, CounterView’s aim is to provide news and views from alternative, non-conventional sources, in contrast to the "mainstream" media, which is, more often than not, a commercial venture, and depends on "established" sources.
Not supported by any organization, CounterView is inspired by top litterateur George Orwell, who said, "Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations."
