ABOUT TheBetter.news – Progressive News Agency

TheBetter.news is an international news sharing platform.

We consider ourselves a critical counterbalance to the right-wing and conservative media establishment. In terms of content, we stand for a socially just and open society, championing tolerance, pluralism and social responsibility for all.

This means we tell stories that focus on people. We report in depth on major interrelationships and try to look beyond the boundaries of daily politics.

Our news from across the world shows that politics and business can benefit the many and not just maximize profits for the few: a better future for all is possible!

Why we need each other

International media coverage is dominated by a few large news agencies. What happens in our world is often told from a geostrategic perspective, where the well-being of the people usually takes a back seat. For instance, international reporting describes the development of southern countries primarily in economic or military terms, but rarely considers the quality of life of the people living there.

News about social movements, about the many fights for a better world with less poverty and more social justice, are few and far between.
Many smaller independent media around the world work to cover news beyond the powerful mainstream media narrative. However, it is challenging to cover all the important issues: each organization has to write news separately in its own national language, invest many resources in research, and struggle daily to disseminate important news quickly and accurately. News and stories from one country often won’t even make it to neighboring nations.

That is why we need each other.

Independent and critical reporting must focus on people and social justice issues around the world.

Let’s support each other. Let’s exchange stories and spread them together. This way we can reach more people with stories that show us there is another way – that a better world is possible.

We therefore invite you to
