Help us by supporting free and real journalism
You may already know that most of the mainstream press is owned by just a handful of billionaires. Most of them don’t live here, and most of them have strong political allegiances and motivations. You may have noticed an increasingly strong right-wing bias in most of our newspapers, shifting and normalising certain views and attitudes in our society (just read about the rise of post-liberalism).
The mainstream press ever dictates public opinion, general elections and referendums, and protects the interest of its proprietors. It’s never been more important to provide a credible alternative or neutral view of events.
However, the biggest challenge we face is the ‘fake news’ epidemic. Politicians, climate change deniers, corporations and even other countries are using fake news to create confusion, dilute facts, create divisions and pursue agendas. Fake news presents a huge threat to democracy.
As newspaper circulations continue to fall and online publications face increasing competition from fake news, it’s becoming harder and harder to pay real journalists for their work. Investigative journalist teams are being sacked and replaced with teams of content creators writing viral posts and ‘listicles’.
If you’re tired of reading about the ’20 best Celebrity Eybrow Styles’ or you’re fed up of seeing Fake News spread on social media, you can help by supporting real, independent journalists. Donate as little as £1 per week, or make a one off pledge for any amount. Every penny helps us pay real, experienced and independent journalists.
