Newslaundry is a media critique, news and current affairs portal and YouTube channel. We value independence and transparency and believe the two are integral to democracy and a healthy society. This applies to news media too, often referred to as the fourth pillar of democracy. You can read about our mission here and see our ownership structure here.
We will question established ways and models that get too comfortable and cozy.
No one should be above scrutiny: Not politics, industry, civil society, and certainly not the media. Not them, not you, not us - no one.
