Editorial: The Editorial Approach of The Newspaper


“It took me quite a while to find an editorial approach in relation to the writers of The Other Newspaper, which I could answer for and formulate in a simple manner. It wasn’t until the connection between courage and commonplaces dawned on me that I understood the purpose of the newspaper. We are used to seeing courage as courage to the uncommon, but what if I say that courage is courage to the ordinary?”


“Take a man and put him into the world. See! Already the situation becomes baroque, mysterious and charged with energy and potential. The ordinary is uncommon, so I would like to have people on The Other Newspaper who just want so-called ordinary humor.”

Hello? Who am I talking to?

“This is the editor. How may I help?”

I want to buy a new mouthpiece for my mouthpiece.

“Are you sitting with your mouthpiece now?”


“What’s does it read?”

It reads: Do you want to be a writer on The Other Newspaper? Do you have the courage to join a consensus-building, creative and quite loosely connected group that will probably slowly become friends because our cooperation is based on trust, openness and respect?
