Russian Insider Media Resource

http://russia-insider.com

The mission of this site is media criticism and reform. It was started in September 2014 by a group of expats living in Russia who felt that coverage of Russia is biased and inaccurate. We received a huge response from volunteers, mostly in the US and Europe.

That the media is seriously malfunctioning regarding Russia is widely evident.  But the problem goes well beyond this. The problem is media control by a few corporations and interest groups, and their close ties with governments and business interests.

Instead of challenging, questioning, and fostering open discussion, they tend to promote those interests. A free press is the eyes and ears of our democracies.  If it is co-opted, we citizens, and our elected leaders, cannot make wise decisions.

We are growing by leaps and bounds, and by crowdfunding and direct fundraising, and ever more volunteer activity, we will expand to topics beyond Russia.

So stay tuned.  We’re just getting started.
