BIG news — the year in review

It has been a productive and rewarding year at BIG Media Ltd., and we owe it all to our amazing editorial team and faithful readers.

Over the last 12 months, our hard-working contributors (An editorial team worth celebrating) have helped keep people apprised on the biggest of issues.

My team of mostly accomplished scientists consistently provides definitive reads on the most pressing matters. They also allow me to wade into the vitriolic volcano that is social media and put an end to many arguments.

Nearly every day I drop links to fact-focused, thoroughly attributed articles produced by the BIG team into online debates. The arguments nearly always end immediately, and future posts from those who published inaccurate information are much more responsible.

Here are some of the topics we covered with the highest levels of accuracy and integrity:

Public health:

Climate change:

Energy transition:

Plastics and policies:


Artificial intelligence:


Once we have reviewed the objective reports of the BIG team, we are often inspired to provide opinions on the subjects covered. Here is a selection of articles that fell under the BIG Mouth category in 2023:

My friend Colleen Stewart and I also attempted to tickle your funny bone throughout the year under the BIG Chuckle column:

Many thanks to our readers, editorial contributors, and platform developer Innovative Digital Solutions Inc. for another fantastic year of delivering truth and critical context!
