Rani Molla covers business and technology news through charts, images, maps and sometimes even text.
Before joining Recode, Rani was a data columnist at Bloomberg Gadfly and a visual reporter at The Wall Street Journal. In those positions, she charted everything from our growing internet addiction to the underlying energy production that makes our life online possible.
She has degrees from Oberlin College and the Columbia Journalism School.
Here is a statement of my ethics and coverage policies. It is more than most of you want to know, but, in the age of suspicion of the media, I am laying it all out.
I do not own or trade individual stocks. I invest in typical 401k and IRA plans, and may invest in index or mutual funds.
I occasionally do speaking engagements, but am not typically paid for them. I do not consult for any companies, nor do I accept gifts or products of value from companies I cover.
Recode is owned wholly by Vox Media, a company with an audience of 170 million worldwide. It has eight distinct media brands: The Verge (Technology and Culture), Vox.com (News), SB Nation (Sports), Polygon (Gaming), Eater (Food and Nightlife), Racked (Shopping, Beauty and Fashion), Curbed (Real Estate and Home), as well as Recode (Tech Business).
Vox Media has a number of investors, including, but not limited to, Comcast Ventures and NBCUniversal, both of which are owned by Comcast Corporation.
My posts have total editorial independence from these investors, even when they touch on products and services these companies produce, compete with, or invest in. The same goes for all content on Recode and at our conferences. No one in this group has influence on or access to the posts we publish. We will also add a direct link to this disclosure when we write directly about the companies.
