Recently we have fielded a few inquiries as to the relationships between VT and (VNR)

So to be transparent and completely clear, we offer this simple clear statement for those that seek to understand how we operate.

Each site is independent

In other words, each site is run by different people, management teams and each site has NOTHING to do with the other.

To be even more clear, for example, is run by Gordon Duff and Jim W. Dean. They are managing editors who specialize in military operations and foreign policy. They have NOTHING to do with VNR.

VNR is run by John Allen.  Each site is fully 100% independent.

So it’s this independence that explains why the editorial is so different between sites.

True independence creates completely different editorial points of view. We know readers of each site are perplexed as they want one point of view for everything but we think such independence adds value to the overall discourse. So we hope everyone, while not always in agreement, at least, respects every point of view.


Personally, I handle all the technology. I don’t get directly involved in VT editorial unless there is something egregious that violates policy. I also field support tickets to help everyone move forward. That’s it. Very simple stuff.

OK, I hope this is all clear. If not, send me a question and I will be glad to answer
