The Post explained the new slogan in a recent interview with CNN’s Brian Stelter. “This is actually something we’ve said internally for a long time in speaking about our mission,” spokeswoman Kris Coratti said. “We thought it would be a good, concise value statement that conveys who we are to the many millions of readers who have come to us for the first time over the last year. We started with our newest readers on Snapchat, and plan to roll it out on our other platforms in the coming weeks.”

Still, the new slogan provoked some chuckles on social media from those who found it somewhat overwrought.
