Grid, a News Site, Goes Live: “Its goal is detailed renderings of the biggest stories of the day and why they matter”

From a New York Times story by Katie Robertson headlined “Grid, a ‘Fuller Picture’ News Site, Goes Live”:

Grid, a news site more than a year in the making, went live early Wednesday, with the goal of becoming a one-stop media shop for detailed renderings of the biggest stories of the day and why they matter.

Mark Bauman, who covered war and genocide around the world for ABC News before becoming a top executive at National Geographic and the Smithsonian Institution, started Grid because, he said, he had become frustrated with the coverage of important issues.
