At Rebel News, we tell the other side of the story. We follow the facts wherever they may lead — even if that conflicts with the official narrative of the establishment. We see that the mainstream media pretends to be impartial, but they increasingly behave like political parties. They don't admit their own political bias, and they pretend to be neutral providers of the news when they are anything but. At Rebel News we fearlessly take on that “Media Party”. We tell it like it is, and we examine the world from a different perspective — a side of the story you won't get anywhere else. Unlike most of our competitors, we don't take money from any government. We depend on viewers like you to crowdfunded our journalism. It’s harder to run a company that way. But it’s the only way to be free from editorial interference behind the scenes
