National Beholder [News Thread | Closed]

The National Beholder is an international business that specialises in the field of gathering and broadcasting of news and current events. It is the single largest such company in the Imperial Socialist Union and is responsible for hundreds of hours of television output each day, as well as the production of dozens of videos uploaded to online social networks and media outlets as part of its broadcast. The National Beholder also has a presence in the international realm and often comments on news occurring elsewhere, although this is mainly designed to inform Eothasi listeners and viewers.

As a private cooperative company based out of the city of Valtoria, the National Beholder has a total of 83.000 partners currently associated with it, operating under a total budget of over £5 billion. The company’s journalist group is divided mainly into several different categories: Beholder » Politics, which focuses on providing political information regarding the Imperial Socialist Union —and, as such, is one of the leading reporters on debates, political campaigns, and initiatives from the Eothasi State— both domestically and abroad with its international partners. Secondly, Beholder » Eothasia. This refers to any and all news that could fit a general spectrum that occurs within or directly affects Eothasi citizens. Thirdly, Beholder » International, in which the general events affecting the international scale are gathered. Fourth, Beholder » Economics & Business, where the general state of both the domestic and global economies are collected. Fifth, Beholder » Sports, where the most Beholder national and most notable international sports results and events are located. Sixth, Beholder » Science, where important scientific news such as discoveries, research institutions, and other science articles are published. Seventh, Beholder » Health, where articles of importance in matters of health are published. Eighth, Beholder » Opinion, the concentration of all opinionated articles within the National Beholder.

The National Beholder is headquartered in the city of Valtoria. Its office building, the Studio d’les Veritats, or the Studio of the Truths, is a large building in the city’s downtown district.

What is today known as the National Beholder was, in truth, one of the first companies to be established under the new rules dictated following the approval of the Popular Constitution of 1913. Given the necessity of establishing companies only through cooperative methods in order to ensure the equal distribution of riches from economic benefit obtained by the company, the then Eothasi Journal was established by 217 partners, each of which provided a substantial initial quota for the start-up. Given the restructuring of the Eothasi economy at the time in order to transition to a socialist system, there was extensive competition amongst different companies attempting to become key players in the field of journalism and media.

Eothasi Journal enjoyed incredible success, quickly becoming one of the most versatile media outlets in the country. By 1950, it had become the most popular news outlet in the country, operating both in print, on the radio, and on live television throughout the country. In the 1963 Workers’ Assembly in December, it was decided that the name of the company should be changed to its currently incumbent one: National Beholder (officially inscribed as Reich Betracter, S.C.)

National Beholder today boasts a number of television services, including Difusión a Diario, or “Broadcast Daily”, a 24-hour news program that outlines the most important events occurring both in Eothasia and around the world; it also has Series Popular, or “Popular Series”, which broadcasts popular shows, movies and documentaries produced both domestic (including such elements produced by National Beholder itself) and foreign. Furthermore, it works with a number of radio networks, providing everything from news to music to podcasts and more. Digitally, it also provides all services available on radio and television as well as updates on sports (matches, events, previews, etc.), weather, and a massive archive of news dating back to the start of the Eothasi Journal as well as news from other outlets for certain important articles.

As a cooperative company, all remaining proceeds at the end of each fiscal year —after paying taxes and budgeting expansion projects for the following year— are equally distributed amongst all partners of the company. In order to join the company as a journalist, an individual must become a partner in the company, which implies paying an initial quota. Afterwards, most of its income comes from advertising, premium level content, and newspaper and magazine sales.

The budget and expenditure for the 2019 fiscal year superseded £5 billion for the first time, a record-high expenditure for the company. However, it was also the year of a record-high revenue for the company, bringing in over £7,4 billion after taxes. As such, the average dividend given to workers at the end of the fiscal year came in at just under £20.000 per worker. Given this high income, the investments being made into the future of the company are extremely notable, especially with regards to its projects for expansion into other countries.

What does the future hold for National Beholder?” It’s a very common question, and on a regular basis, the Workers’ Assembly of the company consistently builds, modifies and protects the long-term plan for our company with the intention of securing a viable future that will bring prosperity to the workers that compose its bodies. Knowing where the company is headed and where the company will be in a matter of years is important for the growth and stability we require, and it’s only natural that this plan be shared with others for the future of our association.

Currently, the National Beholder is one of the most popular media outlets in the entirety of the Imperial Socialist Union. We’ve arrived at this position through an incredible amount of work and sacrifice, from the start of the Eothasi Journal to the eventual coverage of the entirety of the Eothasi peninsula by our journalists and reporters. That said, the objective of the company is to go further still. Recently, our popularity among news outlets in other countries —thanks to our inclusion of relevant global news and our availability in English as well as a multitude of other languages— has been steadily increasing. The Workers’ Assembly has taken the decision to exploit this opportunity and attempt to expand further into this field.

As such, the National Beholder’s currently future plan is to seek to establish physical offices and stations outside of the territorial boundaries of the Empire, as well as include operations to expand the reporting circles for our broadcasts. This includes the economic analyses that ensure the viability of the establishment of our presence in other countries as well as prepare groups of reporters for quick response deployments to areas of interest in the event that it is determined appropriate by the company.

In order to further this expansion, the National Beholder shall also permit specific contact with the Assembly Government on behalf of various organisations that wish to cooperate with the company in order to mutually assist one another in the expansion of our media capabilities. If you are a representative for another news outlet and wish to contact the National Beholder in order to enter negotiations regarding the expansion of our joint services into a specific sector, please contact us at growthprojects@difupop.eot
