The Shift is dedicated to investigative journalism and the defence of press freedom.

There has never been a more urgent need in the country for fearless journalism that speaks truth to power without fear or favour.

A free media is a necessary fourth pillar in a democracy, more so in a country where the media landscape is stifled by political interference and control.

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.

We 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 project.

We aspire and strive to bring about a shift in the media landscape that leads to a fairer, more democratic and just society.
