Semafor news site makes its debut intent on reinventing news


AP Media Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The media organization Semafor launches Tuesday with no less an ambition than reinventing the news story.

Semafor says it plans to structure stories to make clear what is news, and what is analysis or opinion.

Founders say that the ultimate goal, however, is a subscription model.
