Connexions Directory of Groups & Websites 2016
Purpose: News Unspun was set up with the aim of challenging the viewpoints prescribed by mainstream media and creating an environment of discussion and debate. Our objective is to examine how the mainstream media consistently operates in accord with dominant political and business interests.
This website does not claim to have the truth behind the news; rather it seeks to encourage a more critical analysis of news from all mainstream sources.
Our writers analyse news articles and broadcasts, setting them against the historical record, and considering academic and statistical studies, wider political objectives, and eye-witness accounts.
We might also question the following with regard to news reports:
* The use of language, which often - whether intentional or through lack of care - misleads readers/viewers;
* The failure of journalists to ask important or relevant questions;
* The aspect of reporting which appears to forget, and encourage readers to forget, recent history.
