New Matilda is an independent, online only news source. It covers things the mainstream media often doesn’t and covers the big issues and topics of the day or week from angles you wouldn’t read or hear about elsewhere.
As its website says:
Believing that robust media is fundamental to a healthy democracy, newmatilda.com is fiercely independent — it has no affiliation with any political party, lobby group or other media organisation.
Seeing as the world has hardly any truly independent news sources, we need all we can get to help keep those in power accountable to the rest of us in whose interests they are supposed to be acting. And I don’t mean politicians alone.
