Heat Street is a news, opinion, and commentary website. Launched in February 2016, the website is headed by British journalist Louise Mensch.[3][4] It is owned by News Corp under Dow Jones & Company.

History

The website was announced in February 2016. It launched officially on April 20, 2016.[3] The website was to be headed by British journalist Louise Mensch and network producer Noah Kotch, who helped launch Vocativ.[5] The editors are quoted as saying, "We plan to break news, move the media and mock the mainstream. It takes friction to generate heat. We will rub against the grain of convention. That's our mission."[6]

Content

The website features sections on politics, technology, culture, business, entertainment, and life.[7]

The website has been described as centre-right and libertarian. A spokesperson said that the site will, "in a spirit of free speech and no ‘safe spaces,’ cover a variety of topics from a diversity of viewpoints."[8]

The Washington Times's Jennifer Harper described the site as, "The politics here are right-leaning and libertarian-minded; the publication also covers culture wars, commentary, technology, celebrity, business and assorted lifestyle matters."[6]
