Anonymous to soon open Your Anon News, something they just raised $54,000 to open

Anonymous raise $54,000 to begin their own news site, 'Your Anon News' or YAN

Yesterday, an Indiegogo fundraiser setup by someone using the name "Jackal Anon" raised $54,668 to set up a dedicated news site for Anonymous. The campaign originally needed $2,000 so this $54,668 is just a little bit more than was required.

YAN will see some content move away from Twitter and Tumblr, where Anonymous' usual announcements and article links were posted. YAN's mission is also set to be more integrated with the news cycle, where they are "to report, not just aggregate the news". Anonymous' video has stated:

Our goal was to disseminate information we viewed as vital separating it from the political and celebrity gossip that inundates the mainstream.
