Byline Intelligence Team Crowdfunder
Can you help to fund fearless, investigative journalism today?
The media is in crisis. While the world goes to war and corruption pervades the corridors of power, newspapers are filled up with fact-free gossip and political propaganda.
In fact, it has now been confirmed that the Government gave millions in “bungs” to newspapers during the pandemic – a story first exposed by Byline Times.
That is why we set up the Byline Intelligence Team last year – to inject a shot of truth and knowledge into a media climate dominated by hyperbole, nepotism, and nonsense.
Last year, your generous donations helped to launch this groundbreaking project – pledging to unearth malpractice wherever it exists. Thank you.
In the eight months since we launched, your support has helped to reveal:
- The obscene cost of the UK’s private sector COVID spending
- The scale of inequality in Britain, and the way in which successive Conservative governments have impoverished the Red Wall
- The nepotistic system of honours and privileges awarded to Conservative Party donors
- The lack of action taken against police officers accused of misconduct
- The violations committed by banks, water companies and firms owned by elite Tory donors
- The growing ties between Chinese tech firms and UK universities
- The burgeoning profits of elite private schools
- The profiteering and persecution that underpins our asylum system
- The true impact of Brexit
- The parties held in Whitehall while the country locked down
- Persistent Islamophobia in the Conservative Party
- The ways in which Russian money has infected Conservative politics
This sort of investigative reporting usually costs hundreds of thousands of pounds – but thanks to you we’ve managed to do it on a shoestring.
However, to carry on our essential reporting, we urgently need your help.
Can you show your support for independent, investigative reporting again today and help reach our target of £25,000, to fund our work for the next six months?
Your support today will mean that the Byline Intelligence Team can keep holding the Government and the establishment to account. You will be helping to expose corruption, Russian interference, climate change denial, dark money, dodgy data grabs, military secrecy and overreach, and the truth about rampant inequality.
Please chip in today. Your donation will fund truly independent journalism that reports the truth without fear or favour. Thank you.
