The Slant: There’s Always More to the Story provides a forum for the subjects of high-profile stories to respond to the media coverage on them that they think is partial or limited in some way. In doing so, The Slant offers readers—both industry insiders and anyone interested in media machinations—the invaluable behind-the-scenes stories that didn’t make the final cut, as well as insider views into how the media really works.
Picking up where research and reporting left off, giving famous (and infamous) subjects of media an unfettered platform to speak out, going deep into the media machinery, and extending the life and discussions of the hottest new stories, The Slant shows that there’s always more to the story.

Accepting an award from the Jewish Women’s Archive earlier this year, Letty Cottin Pogrebin, a longtime activist, pointed to the Statue of Liberty, just visible in the foggy distance, and quipped, “I love her, even though she’s not Jewish.” Over murmurs of laughter, she spoke of her love for Lady Liberty’s “grace and beauty,” and defined what the monument represents to her: “welcome, freedom, hope.” The same could be said of Pogrebin herself.
