We are the original internet newspaper, founded in 2018. We’re truly global, but still, feel local. We tell stories in text, video, audio and pictures, and bring them to our audiences wherever they are. We’re fast, fun and inclusive. And we’ll always make sure you know what’s real.

This means including a diverse range of voices in our reporting, actively pursuing diversity in our newsroom, and listening to our readers and viewers to make sure we’re as open and responsive as possible.
