A more honest, adversarial approach to journalism
The billionaire-owned media and our public broadcaster have long peddled the claim that they’re objective, but most people have stopped buying it. In a world of injustice, no one — and especially not journalists — can be truly neutral or impartial. “Objectivity” becomes merely a cover for uncritical reporting or a muzzle on those speaking simple truths about power and privilege.
The Breach practices a more honest journalism: rigorous in our reporting and evidence-gathering, fair in our arguments and judgements, but transparent about our views and values.
We believe journalism can be credible while still open about its commitments: to inspire action, tell stories about people remaking society, and amplify visions of a new world to win together.
