New Objective got hit hard by COVID-19. However, the best I can tell, they are still operational, but they are at a reduced capacity. Now -- it does seem like someone hacked their front page.

Unfortunately, I'm not worth much more than a hype man right now, we're doing big stuff in Baltimore! but if you're just looking for some Magnitude, I got you).
