There was never a better time for a media outlet that speaks truth to power without fear or favour, through reporting that is honest, accurate and fair. We live in times of change where Malta faces new challenges and opportunities while facing a crisis of governance, as well as environmental and social challenges affecting citizens’ quality of life.

A free media is a necessary fourth pillar in a democracy, more so in a country where the media landscape is stifled by partisan bias and a reverential approach to power. The current media landscape is crying out for original reporting, in-depth analysis and investigative stories that hold power to account.

We will bring our free-thinking spirits, our experience in politics and civil society activism as well as our track record of no holds barred journalism and sharp analytical skills to this new project. We hope this will represent a shift in the media landscape that leads to a more democratic society.
