True/Slant is not a news aggregator, but an original news content site. It was founded by a news veteran and is launching with 65 journalists, or “knowledge experts.” The WSJ’s Walt Mossberg wrote his column and produced a video about True/Slant which reveals the “highly unusual” business model including a practice Mossberg says is “verboten” in most newsrooms:
