Former president on hand for publishing of new electronic newspaper (2014/05/01)

Dissatisfied with the current state of media, Nobel laureate Lee Yuan-tseh and others published the first edition of the electronic newspaper “Taiwan People News” today. 

To the sounds of musical saw master Lee Fang-teng, “Taiwan People News” was officially published. Present at the ceremony were former Vice President Annette Lu and former President Lee Teng-hui.

Lee Teng-hui
Former President
I encourage all members of “Taiwan People News” to ensure that the spirit of free press accompanies the launch of this publication. 

One way the paper is raising its profile is through a special column written by director Wu Nien-jen.

Wu Nien-jen
Director
Everyone writes too seriously, which led me to consider composing articles with greater emotion and playfulness. I think a more relaxed approach can be used to cover social problems, cultural issues and even politics.

To raise funds, over a period of a year the paper got 300 people to buy shares costing NT$100,000 each. In its initial stages, “Taiwan People News” will only be available online.

Chen Yun-shin
Chairman, ‘Taiwan People News’
If readership exceeds 1 million then I will publish a print version.

“Taiwan People News” hopes to stand out by offering stories and views that receive relatively little coverage in Taiwan’s four main newspapers.

民報創刊

對媒體現狀有更多期許,前中研院院長李遠哲等人共同發起的「民報」,在今天正式創刊,不過,現階段還是以網路為主。

在國寶級鋸琴大師李芳騰的樂聲中,「民報」正式創刊,創刊典禮冠蓋雲集,前總統李登輝、前副總統呂秀蓮等人都是座上賓。

“勉勵民報所有的同仁,一定要有自由報業的創刊理念和精神”

為了打響知名度,導演吳念真扛起專欄作家的重責大任。

“因為大家都寫得太嚴肅,我在想說要不要用情感一點的,或是好玩一點的,我覺得這個世界,其實談社會問題,談文化問題,甚至談政治,都可以很輕鬆的角度談”

民報募集資金,一股十萬元,花一年時間募到300位共同發起人,草創時期,先以電子報試水溫。

[[民報董事長 陳永興]]
“如果有超過一百萬人點閱,我就要發行紙本”

網路報只是第一步,民報期許有朝一日發行紙本,有別於現有的四大報,走出自己的一片天。
