These are my favorite independent media sources (Websites, twitter accounts) with little or no corporate influence/backing/underwriting:

 

Black Agenda Report (international: digital)

(English)

https://blackagendareport.com/

Editor: Margaret Kimberly

 

DemocracyNow! (USA/worldwide: print/digital/video/podcasts/TV/radio) (English/Spanish)

www.democracynow.org @democracynow

Hosts: Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, Nermeen Sheikh

 

Note: their Syria coverage has been very poor; they don't challenge issues with HRW or Amnesty; and of late too often focus on centrist Democrats. Not sure why.

 

The Grayzone (International, digital)

(English)

https://thegrayzone.com/

Editor: Max Blumenthal

 

Hong Kong Free Press (Hong Kong/worldwide: print/digital)

(English)

https://www.hongkongfp.com/ @HongKongFP

Editor: Tom Grundy

 

The Intercept (USA/worldwide; digital/video/podcasts)

(English)

www.theintercept.org @theintercept

Editors: Glenn Greenwald, Betsy Reed, Jeremy Scahill

 

The Intercept_Brasil (Brazil/worldwide; digital/video/podcasts)

(Portuguese)

https://theintercept.com/brasil/ @theinterceptbr

Editors: Leandro Demori  (Excecutive Editor), Andrew Fishman (Managing Editor)

 

Note: Both Intercepts have done outstanding reporting on many issues in USA, Brazil and internationally; challenge is their funder is billionaire EBAY founder Pierre Omidyar who says he gives them complete editorial control but that's not always clear.

 

LausanHK (Hong Kong and diaspora; digital)

(English)

https://lausan.hk/about/

Editor: None, it is a collective

 

"Lausan 流傘 is a site of solace, solidarity, connection and, above all, hope in what Hong Kong can be. Our members are tied together by this hope; it informs every aspect of our translating, writing and organising. While we initially joined forces in response to the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill protests, we are driven by a shared purpose that predates the immediate circumstances of 2019 and far exceeds the confines of our collective: a determination to dismantle long-standing relations of dominance and exploitation in the wake of Chinese and Western colonial control and neoliberal capitalist accumulation—a love of our home."

 

Middle East Eye (Southwest Asia & North Africa; digital)

(English/French)

https://www.middleeasteye.net/

TelesurEnglish (Latinx America, Caribbean, International; digital)

(English, Spanish)

https://www.telesurenglish.net/section/news/index.html
