Independent news and commentary organization enhances platform for "voices from a free America"
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., Oct. 25, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Pajamas Media today announced it has changed its name to PJ Media to reflect the organization's evolution, growth and maturity. Since 2005, the company has shed light on issues that are important to Americans through its insightful reporting, commentary and analysis, making PajamasMedia.com a must-read for 1.4 million readers consuming 20 million page views each month. Now as PJMedia.com, they will continue to make the voices of their writers and contributors heard as well as amplify the voices of other Americans who wish to speak their minds and express their opinions freely. PJ Media calls the mission they are on -- "voices from a free America."
"This evolution of our brand ushers PJ Media into a new era," said Simon. "We saw that people were worried that their rights and freedoms were deteriorating, and the next generation was going to be shackled with massive government debt. We heard people's concerns about how the country was moving away from its founding principles and watched as Tea Party activists and others protested these changes. It was clear that the time had come to shed our pajamas, change our name to PJ Media, and renew our commitment to the issues of freedom and liberty."
Beginning in 2005, Pajamas Media covered stories that others in the media initially passed by, including doctored climate change data, the gunrunners' scandal, Department of Justice voter fraud and the Ground Zero mosque. As PJ Media, the company's websites will continue to act as a platform for the "voices from a free America." Our writers, columnists, commentators and other contributors will stand up for free thought and speech in society, schools and media; a free and prosperous economy; a secure financial future for Americans; and preservation of what makes America great.
"This is an exciting time for PJ Media and a milestone we have been working toward for a long time," said Roger L. Simon, founding CEO of PJ Media. "PJ Media has experienced extraordinary growth that really speaks to the talent of our writers and dedication of our staff. Over the last six years, the PJ Media family has expanded and created a safe harbor for free speech to meet the ever-increasing public demand for independent news sources that celebrate the freedoms granted by the Constitution. Our team is looking forward to taking our mission to the next level and delivering more exceptional investigative reporting, informative analysis and entertaining commentary through PJMedia.com, PJTV.com and PJInstitute.com."
