Since our launch in March 2015 we’ve punched above our weight.

We were pulling apart the racism and scapegoating of refugees months before the crisis went mainstream. We secured an apology and correction from the Telegraph for major errors in a piece on social mobility.

And we were the first to bulldoze shameful newspaper coverage of last week’s LinkedIn sexism row – when a lawyer was called a ‘femanazi’ by the press.

Now we want to build on this work and take the fight to the newspapers.

As a non-profit start-up we are entirely funded by readers like you.

Can you chip in to help us fight for an honest press?

Support us now.

Thanks for caring – let’s keep up the fight!

    perhaps you should expend your effort in monitoring the left wing lies and bullying and intimidation that seems to be resurgent

    I admire you for wanting to “cut through the lies and spin”, or at least I would do if you were remotely objective in your approach. It is all too evident that what you really want is a media that publishes your lies and spin rather than the other lot’s lies and spin. I find it all a bit sad really.

    So you monitor only a certain type of newspaper (right wing), why not all papers? Hmm? Maybe someone needs to monitor LFF (or do they think they are above criticism?).

    ‘Feminazi’ was an apt and reasonable statement by the Mail. It suited the woman perfectly.

    Bullying our national media is not the way forward.

    No. Don’t trust the Atlanticist branch of Labour (of which this seems to be a mouthpiece) to be properly objective. “Media Lens” and “Sodium Haze” do a better job, anyway.

    Nice photo. I see you’ve perfected the smug quizzical expression
