My name is Zack Benz and I’m the creator of @DailyPlanetDC. I’ve been a fan of the Daily Planet since I was eight years old.
The Daily Planet has always been a beacon of hope for me and it’s my life’s mission to make it shine in a similar light to so many around the world.
My goal for bringing the Planet into reality is simple; I want to provide an unbiased news source that honors the values echoed by our comic book counterpart.
Ethical values like seeking out the truth while reporting on it factually is our top priority. In order to do so, we strive to be compassionate, caring and collected during trying times.
In the times of fear and confusion, the job of informing the public is the responsibility of the Daily Planet. A great metropolitan newspaper who’s reputation for clarity and truth had become a symbol of hope for the city of Metropolis.Superman: The Movie (1978)
As many know, @DailyPlanetDC accepts work from numerous contributors. They might even be included on our team page. I’d like to stress that these individuals are solely volunteering their time. They are not employed by us. So anything they share regarding current events, controversial topics or anything of that nature does not reflect the views of the Daily Planet.
The use of @DailyPlanetDC in a bio is a designation that is only used by contributors with my written authorization. It implies you are an employee or part of the organization. Correspondents and contributors are freelance employees from outside the company. @DailyPlanetDC is reserved for writers who meet the selected criteria in the Daily Planet’s code of ethics.
Currently, only myself and Brianna Taggart have written authorization.

We want it to be a place for all, where all feel welcomed. I hope to continue to achieve that.
Thanks, and I love you all.
