In a ‘post-truth’ world, thoughtful, intelligent and well-researched analysis has never been more necessary. We provide this at the ST.
Edited by Axel Ritenis and produced by a team in Sydney, the ST aims to help you make sense of the news through providing a reliable platform for news and media releases.
“We offer free access to the exchange of ideas, rather than echo chamber of prejudice and vested interests.”
ST has no ideological agenda, and we are not covertly pushing any political or philosophical way of thinking. Our aim is simply to preserve the integrity of the free press in NSW by embracing nuance and complexity – and showing the world in all its shades of grey.
To read the ST is to see a story from every angle. Our social mission is ‘caring for our community’.
We are passionate about doing things in an ethical, socially and environmentally sustainable way, across all our operations.
The ST is built on trust, truth, and transparency. We are funded through advertising, donations and the subscription model.
-We check our facts and expect our professional and citizen journalists and contributors to do the same.
Everything we publish is professionally edited by human beings, not robots, so advertisers can be certain that their products will be presented in a responsible context.
-We reward our contributors fairly, never misuse our readers’ data, and answer to independent trustees.
For everyone in search of open-minded, independent journalism, the ST is the genuine article!
