We are the latest thing in experimental online news channels. We are home to a monthly alternative news programme which aims to get behind the headlines and promote a people-first perspective. Critical reports will put the case for a better life for all and expose everything and anything that smacks of inequality and moral hypocrisy. We are not impressed by the mass of non-news, celebrity nonsense, or by the current preoccupations with crime and people’s weird problems. But we are not just shouting at the telly; we are serious about clarifying issues, understanding trends, challenging bad ideas and changing minds.
"The Battle of Ideas is where we can step out boldly where the angels – or should that be demons – of conventionality fear to tread."
