Ad-free investigative journalism

‘When in doubt, follow the money.’ This principle guides all our work. Our independent newsroom digs deeper and uncovers the stakes — no matter the topic.

This is what you can expect:

  • We hold the powerful accountable.
  • We conduct extensive, in-depth investigative journalism.
  • We are radically independent; no one tells us what to write.
  • We will not display any ads, ever.
  • We are a social enterprise. Our aim is not to make money, but to fight for a better world.
