We don’t pander to government. We’re not indebted to big business. And no, we still don’t work for MI5. We write the news as we find it, whatever the reaction, however many angry phone calls, text messages and emails we get (oh yes we do!). But we will never put our content behind a paywall, which means that everyone with access to the internet can read our news for free.
But these are tough times for the news media the world over, as Google and Facebook not only spew out fake news and made up conspiracy theories but also increasingly gobble up advertising money.
So if you value our efforts to keep producing the news, please send us a bit if love, and help us continue to shine a little light on what’s really going on. We would really appreciate it.
