Wall Street Journal Launches "SafeHouse" Site for Secure Submission of Tips, Information

NEW YORK, May 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Wall Street Journal today launched SafeHouse, a service that allows users to upload and submit tips, information, documents or files directly to the Journal. SafeHouse is a stand-alone site – https://www.wsjsafehouse.com – located on secure servers and managed directly by Journal editors. Users can submit materials along with their contact information or remain anonymous.

"The Wall Street Journal is the world's most trusted source of news, and SafeHouse will enable the collection of information and documents that could be used in the generation of trustworthy news stories," said Robert Thomson, editor-in-chief of Dow Jones & Company and managing editor of the Journal.

SafeHouse provides a single location for readers to submit information to the Journal on any topic via multiple available formats, including text files, audio recordings, photos and more. Information provided to SafeHouse will be reviewed and vetted by a senior Wall Street Journal editor assigned to manage the service.

If a user prefers to be considered a confidential source before agreeing to provide materials to the Journal, the user can fill out a secure online form, and a Journal editor will follow up directly.

SafeHouse is accessible via: https://www.wsjsafehouse.com.
