Who Are We?

The Glasgow Sloth is the latest online news publication for Scotland’s busiest city. We are constantly being told how the demise of journalism is just around the corner despite the fact that there is more content out there than ever. Consumers of the news have an abundance of sources to choose from, which can at times be overwhelming. The Glasgow Sloth aims to address the allegations that journalism has become ‘churnalism’ by giving more time to develop stories, focusing on angles that have been missed or ignored. The Glasgow Sloth might not be the first to break the news but we will cover it in a way that is sensitive to the nuances of context. Our methodology values accuracy and detail over speed and shareability. Follow us for an in-depth look at the news in our city and help us revolutionise journalistic output.
