Russia Insider är en nyhetsportal som startades i september 2014 av en grupp expats bosatta i Ryssland syftet är att ge en annan bild av Ryssland än den som gammelmedia ger. Men även att ge en mer rättvis syn på andra nyhetshändelser i världen.
Sidan finansieras med crowdfunding och frivilliga bidrag från läsarna.
The mission of this site is media criticism and reform. It was started in September 2014 by a group of expats living in Russia who felt that coverage of Russia is biased and inaccurate. We received a huge response from volunteers, mostly in the US and Europe.
That the media is seriously malfunctioning regarding Russia is widely evident. But the problem goes well beyond this. The problem is media control by a few corporations and interest groups, and their close ties with governments and business interests. Instead of challenging, questioning, and fostering open discussion, they tend to promote those interests.
A free press is the eyes and ears of our democracies. If it is co-opted, we citizens, and our elected leaders, cannot make wise decisions.
