Independent Media can go to where the silence is and break the sound barrier, doing what the corporate networks refuse to do – Amy Goodman
The Levant was established in June 2014 by a group of like-minded journalists, analysts, and researchers with an interest for the Middle East. A much talked about the region of the world, the Middle East has suffered much injustice when it comes to the media, as bias, prejudices and political motivations have clouded and perverted what should have been a balanced and realistic account of the truth.
At The Levant, our duty is to the truth, the essence of journalism.
We intend to bring our readers a piece of the Middle East to their lives. Unapologetic in our coverage, we will remain free from all bias, even if it means ruffling a few feathers along the way. As we all know the truth often generates anger, especially in the Middle East where politics and policies are so entangled in one another that realities quite literally get lost in translation.
Our angle is regional. We want you, our readers, to see things from the locals’ perspective – not a reflection of your understanding of the region but how life is on the ground.
Our journey is one of true and profound love for the Middle East and its people – beyond the cultural, sectarian and political barrier.
We hope you enjoy the journey!
