Our objective with Outlaw Journalism is to provide fair and just analysis of news stories featured daily in the mainstream media: on the television; on the internet; in print.
Information is the unmeasured currency of the 21st century. The words we consume affect our beliefs and views, our moods, thoughts and actions. How powerful then, in this post-modern age of 24/7 information, are those who report the news to millions? As important as it is that our political and social leaders are held to account, so must the ethics and agenda of journalism in the mainstream.
With this blog, we will feature the headlines and hot topics of the day, subtract the spin and strip away the corporate agenda to reveal the nature behind each splash. We will measure the objectivity of each article through use of language, facts and evidence against the context of the wider social and political landscape. Our aim is to reveal and explore a relevant, unexplored angle within each major news story.
