About

Free West Media news site from Europe’s perspective

This new media outlet has the aim to present a broad and unbiased daily coverage of European and world wide news from a western perspective.

The people of Europe are revolting. They reject the old parties that have ruled for decades and they demand access to propaganda free news reports. In Germany, this mistrust in old time’s media manifests itself most clearly in the German slogan “Lügenpresse”.

In times when the system media is more concerned about protecting the current political leadership from the citizen’s scrutiny than to serve as the advocate of the public, Free West Media will offer the peoples of Europe a voice.

The political landscape of Europe is changing. New parties and movements grow from below, propelled by enthusiastic grassroots. Parties like Alternative für Deutschland, Front National and Freiheitliche Partei Österreich gain momentum, in spite of harsh opposition from the establishment and harassment from street thugs. Even more so, the old establishment parties that like to call them “populist” are slowly and silently adapting their policies to mimic those new rivals in the hope of stopping the flight of the voters, thus proving the “populists” right.

The establishment press has shown a weak ability to adapt to this new reality, serving more as a propaganda channel and defender of the collapsing order. Therefore it is time to replace it.

Free West Media is not connected to any political party or organisation, and will scrutinize any one and any thing for the benefit of the public in an objective and unbiased manner, the way real journalism should be performed.
