Ever so often at Newslaundry, we change things up: we hear from our subscribers instead of the other way around. After all, we are powered by our subscribers, whose support allows us to pursue honest, independent journalism, and tell the stories that must be told.

NL Baithak is one of the tools we use to this end: a quarterly session for Game Changer subscribers to ask us about our work and our views on various issues, to tell us what they like, or don’t, and give feedback.

The latest Baithak session on September 13 saw subscribers asking a wide range of questions. We discussed Newslaundry’s upcoming screening of the Ravish Kumar documentary and the potential for events in other cities like Hyderabad. We also talked about whether there needs to be a push to occasionally publish ‘positive’ news, how journalists report on Parliament, and the fate of India’s bullet trains.

The next NL Baithak is scheduled for 7.30 pm on November 29, 2023. To participate, do look out for our announcements on social media. We will send an email with more information.

Why should I pay for news?

Independent journalism is not possible until you pitch in. We have seen what happens in ad-funded models: Journalism takes a backseat and gets sacrificed at the altar of clicks and TRPs.
