What is The Canary ?
Kerry-anne Mendoza, our Editor-in-Chief, teamed up with a group of extraordinary people to form The Canary in October 2015. With absolutely no financial backing or outside investment, we have rapidly built a brand new media outlet from scratch through determination in our progressive values, a vibrant team and engaging content.
We remain completely independent of any advertisers, funders, companies, political organisations, or political parties.
Today, a handful of powerful moguls control our mainstream media. As such, its coverage is largely conservative. But we have created a truly independent and viable alternative . One that isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo, to ask the hard questions, and to have an opinion. This has only been possible because of the amazing support from you – our readers.
The team at The Canary believes that a free, fair and fearless media is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, because for democracy to work, it requires informed consent from its citizens. We intend to help generate that informed consent by providing our readers with high-quality, well-researched and incisive journalism that holds power to account.
Our content focuses on news, ideas and key developments that impact democracy, equality, freedom and fairness.
Around 15 freelance writers are contributing daily articles to the site.
