New Story Research (February 2017)


Recommended Posts

  • Administrators

All media agencies are encouraged to research news stories, giving the agency that discovers it a business advantage as they are able to break the news. These news stories also include character scandals, giving even more incentive to conduct research. Each $1 million that an agency spends per month increases the likelihood of discovering a story by 3%. The likelihood of successfully researching a character scandal is limited to a max of 60% and 75% for any other news story. To conduct research, news agency owners should post a reply to this thread each month. This entire Player Media forum is hidden from most players and only those with media tycoon characters can access it.


Name: (The name of the news agency)

Research Budget: (The amount being spent on this research task)

Subject Researching: (The target of the research. This is optional, though recommended to give the admins a guideline of what you're looking for.)

The template should be completed for each research attempt by an agency, but it should be pointed out that news agencies are not limited to just one research attempt each month. Agencies can (and likely will) attempt to research multiple subjects and/or leads per month.

January 2016 has been processed and the relevant parties were sent a PM. @CWard I've hidden your post to be graded for February.


I'd also like to point out something important. This feature isn't designed to just be used for partisan means. Try to discover actual stories, not just scandals. Doing so will allow your money to go a lot further. Questions? Ask here:

$1million looking for shady Republican dealings in Arkansas

I'm unable to honor this as it would put you too far in the negative.


As a word of advice. Until you become national, it's a much better use of your money to research actual news stories (as opposed to scandals).
