Independent Media

The mainstream corporate media is owned by a lot of the same people, people who often do not have the interests of the majority of us at heart. Not only that, content is often selected based on what will generate the most ad revenue, rather than being about the most important decisions being made. Journalists at these big media outlets are also often thrown from one topic to another and asked to produce very quickly, meaning they are rarely are versed in the topics they are covering or the lived experiences of those most affected by the decisions. Here are a few of our favourite places to get information about what is going on. Most are funded independently and/or centre the voices of those most affected.

We are always looking for more resources, so email our Resource Centre Coordinator if you know of an independent media source that might make a good addition to this list.
